Harvest 2017 Recap

Here at Pasolivo, harvest is one of the most exciting times of the year! This process only happens once a year and lasts anywhere from 2-3 weeks. If you have ever wondered how olives get turned into olive oil, we have all of the equipment and tools needed for this process at the Pasolivo Ranch. All of our olives are grown, picked, and milled on-site and we do not use any chemicals or heat which is required of true extra virgin olive oil.

The first step in this process is picking the olives. Here at Pasolivo, we have over 6,500 olive trees on our property and 11 different olive varieties. Every day we have a minimum of 80 people hand-picking. Olives are moved by tractor to the mill where they are unloaded into the hopper.
