Olive harvest 2014

The time of the olive harvest is fast approaching. The olives are starting to change colour from their lime green to a ducky red and will end up a deep plumy red colour when fully ripe.

The traditional time to start picking here in Umbria is 'dopo i Santi', or after All Saints Day on the 1st November. However, our olio nouvo festival in Trevi ( is on the 1st and 2nd November so we will need to start picking before All Saints Day so we can have some oil for the festival. So I think we will be starting around the 22nd October. #olivepicking #oliveharvest
