A day in a Olive Grove
Amongst the 100 year old Empeltre olive trees I helped Victor the CEO of Mis Raices (My Roots) which was my first client - harvest this dark gold fruit and take to the mill to turn into their Premium EVOO.
after our yeild analysis we determine each tree produces approx 7 bottles of their olive oil. Not much give the work it takes to manage that tree for a year. They earn less than $50 a tree. So when you see a $20 price on the shelf as yourself how can brands who sell for $6 a bottle do it?? Hmmmm???
