The word “olive” means “wonderful”. And when it comes to olive oil, that’s exactly what you get: a rich, flavourful liquid made from the pressed fruit of the olive tree, which is native to the Mediterranean region. The olives are harvested when ripe and pressed to extract the oil.
Anita, one of the young farmers in our social project Farmers Farm. She is passionate about how organic olive oil can improve your health and your life. As an organic oil farmer, she believes that traditional harvesting practices are important for regenerative practices, and believes in the Mediterranean diet’s focus on healthy fats.
