Welcome to the Olive Picking
Bringing you the best
picking holidays and experiences: help with
harvest or adopt an olive
tree; whatever you decide you will be rewarded
with your own fabulous extra virgin olive oil.
This website is designed to guide you to the
picking holidays showing
you where you can participate in the olive harvest. You can choose to spend as little as half a day to several weeks picking olives. On
an olive picking holiday you will be working and staying in beautiful surroundings (olive groves are often full of
wild flowers and butterflies), you will receive a warm welcome from owners keen to share with you their way of
life and gain the satisfaction of helping to gather in the harvest. Even better you will discover that nothing
tastes nicer than fresh extra virgin olive oil produced from the olives that you have helped to hand pick from
the tree and will have watched being pressed in the local mill.
If Olive Picking isn't for you the website also brings you a hand picked range of other olive
related experiences ... walking
and cycling tours through olive groves, books
written by people living the dream, olive oil
festivals and museums to visit, information on olive
cultivation including growing, harvesting and production methods, find out where to buy
hundred year old olive trees, extra virgin olive oil, olive oil
beauty products ... in fact
everything a lover of olives and olive oil could possibly want ...
