The weigh in

Last tree picked before cooking breakfast for our last morning meal in the sunshine before the young ones head back to Auckland.


A short drive up the road to Martin and Judy’s press house and a few anxious moments waiting to see who has won the weigh in sweepstake, with guesses at 131kg, 135kg, 140kg and 154kg.


55,000 olives picked, the total haul comes in at 137.5kg; twice what we picked last year.

Still fascinated by the pressing process we spend the next 5 hours watching our olives being pulped and squeezed into the liquid gold that they are.

22.5 litres is our result for 2015.
