Pressing Olives into Oil at the local Co-operative

In November, we welcomed to the valley the wonderful Olivier and Maxime from Quebec, Canada. They stayed here for 2 weeks and during the first week the four of us picked olives by hand as a team for four days. We managed to harvest every single olive in the valley from all 240 olive trees!
