What follows shows how the olives from the Greek Hovel (2.681 tonnes) became 450 kg of olive oil. Having revisited ny 2014 results that is a tiny fall in olives but a steep fall in oil. But I got a better price so have walked away with roughly the same cash - 1650 Euro, against labour costs of 770 Euro now that I do my pruning myself.

The photos are from the press in the local village of Kambos where you can see the machines in order of use without olives and with, the strapping lads who lift 50 kg sacks as you and I might lift a 10 kg bag of potatoes, and the little chemistry set that determines the quality of each batch of oil. It is all very high tech. Enjoy.
