oLiVe HaRvEsT iS fiNaLLy dOnE...

Finally we finished the olive Harvest this year...we took 910 Kg to the press, which gave us 120L of Olive oil...Praise God !!! And a big thanks to the Jones' family, Marcia, Marinho, Maureen, Isaac, Alana, Sieglinde and Sebastian, who helped in the process in different stages...
You can check here for more interesting videos about all the process (I'm still uploading more)...and I have a suggestion to all of you who would like to support the Mount of Oaks...

As you know, or not, this place lives mainly from donations of many different people and also from the participation of those who pass by...
But we do need lots of investment in this pioneering stage, to fix the roof of our kitchen, the bath and shower house, to build our houses, guest houses, a common meeting place, installing the irrigation system and a tank, and of course, lots of plants and trees...and obviously the daily expenses we already have...
So I came up with an idea...
we could sell part of our olive oil for those who would like to support us...
I was thinking it would be fare to price 10E for each liter, plus the transportation...
As you know, all the process counted with lots of hand work, and it took more than 4 weeks to pick all the olives...besides the fact that is 100% organic...

Also, if you have any ideas on how to transport it to your country (if you know someone is driving down here for instance), and you'd like to make the distribution there, it would help on the cost as well...

People can always give more than 10E, but that's up to each one...

We'll also have lots of conserved olives to eat...but those will only be ready around April or May...

Anyway, I leave the suggestion... Get in touch if it interest you...
Thanks!!!
