THE SEASONS AND THE WORKING FARM
This small working farm has just a handful of friendly staff who you will see working the land or in the mill-
Come in the spring and witness the fruit trees in blossom and buttercups meadows, the vines are young and even the olive trees have small flowers.
The fruit on the tree are almost all ripe and the vegetable garden is flourishing, and fresh herbs are ready to pick. This is also a time when the surrounding sunflower fields will be in full bloom.
If you visit in September, you can pick fresh figs from the trees and see the harvest of the grapes and taste the new wine.
In OCTOBER to DECEMBER the olive harvest is in full swing and you can witness the pressing of olives into oil. This is the farms busiest period where you will witness local people bringing their olives to the press. This can be an exciting time to see the production of olive oil however, this can also be a time when the noise of the mill can carry on until quite late into the night. So, it’s not an ideal time to visit if you like to get to bed early! During NOVEMBER the kiwis are ripe and are harvested.
ACCESS AND PARKING
There is plenty of free parking at the farm just 40 metres from the front door.
