The Olive Oil Farmers are jumping for joy in the Sabine Hills
We have had a few very cold days in #January, and the local #oliveoil farmers are jumping for joy! 'They say', just a few days of frost will help kill potential dangerous bugs/insects living in the #olivetrees.....so it looks like we have a great beginning for the production of #Sabina #EVVO extra virgin olive oil in this area for 2017! Viva Italia!
'Behind the scenes' in the Olive grove: Now is the time for trimming the olive trees.
Cutting the extra branches off the olive tree, helps the tree to receive more light, heat and air, therefore optimum conditions for producing more fruit... Although the olive groves seem tranquil at this time of year, the farmers are still working, preparing the olive trees to produce their best!
So 'fingers crossed' for the 2017 Sabina D.O.P. extra virgin Olive Oil.
