Olive spread

This is one of the fields in our local village, Manciano, where the local olive mill owner spreads the waste from the milling process. There is a limit to how much he can dispose of this way as it is quite an acidic product.

This by product can in much larger mills be further processed and more oil extracted.

The 'woody' by product of leaves and bits of branch can be further processed and turned into wood pellets or just burnt as they are.
