Early Harvest

Our early harvest oil

Early harvest olive oil is a type of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) made from olives that are harvested at the beginning of the season, when they are still green and unripe. This oil is known for its unique flavor profile and high antioxidant content, as the olives are picked before they fully mature and develop their characteristic fruitiness. By harvesting the olives early, the resulting oil has a distinct flavor that is fruity and robust, with a slightly bitter and pungent finish. Early harvest olive oil is a popular choice for those who appreciate the unique taste and health benefits of high-quality EVOO, and it’s often prized for its strong, fresh flavor that complements a wide range of dishes.

When do we harvest it?

Early harvest olive oil is made from olives that are harvested early in the season, typically in the months of October and November in the Northern Hemisphere. The exact timing of the harvest can vary depending on factors such as the region, climate, and type of olive being used. In general, early harvest olives are picked before they are fully ripe, when they are still green and firm. This is done to capture the unique flavor and health benefits of the olives, which are at their peak in the early stages of development. Once harvested, the olives are quickly pressed to extract the oil, resulting in a fresh and flavorful EVOO that is highly prized by chefs and food enthusiasts around the world.

How do we harvest it?

Harvesting olives for early harvest EVOO is a delicate process that requires precision and care. Olives are typically hand-picked using special combs or rakes that gently remove the fruit from the tree without damaging it. This helps to ensure that the olives are not bruised or crushed, which can negatively affect the quality of the resulting oil. After they are picked, the olives are quickly transported to the mill where they are cold-pressed to extract the oil. This process involves crushing the olives into a paste and then separating the oil from the solids. The resulting oil is then carefully stored in a cool, dark place to preserve its flavor and quality. The end result is a fresh, flavorful early harvest EVOO that is prized by food lovers around the world.
