Olive Harvest 2021 – fresh oil now available!
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!
The weather was good, warm enough during the day and not too windy to use the olive nets. Long hours, lots of food and mulled wine in the evenings.
We managed to pick 778 kilos of olives, which we pressed on the final day at the co-operative mill in Riba-roja d’Ebre to make 156 litres of the most delicious olive oil.
Cans of Riba Rocks Olive Oil are now available in Forn Montserrat, the bakery in Riba-roja d’Ebre.
Riba Rocks is a not-for-profit Association. For a donation to the Association, you will receive a can of olive oil!
