Adopt an olive tree this Christmas

Looking for a Christmas gift that is a little different then why not adopt an olive tree from
Casa Margherita.

Casa Margherita recipe book and then in winter a guaranteed two litres of extra virgin olive oil.

Choose from a 'young & virile', a 'full flush' or an 'elder statesman' tree. All this for only €71.50 plus shipping. Find out more at
