Olives Trees

We have 641 Italian varieties of olive trees.

I understand typically you get 30 to 50 gallons per ton. A better way to think of it is each tree can make about 1 gallon of olive oil.

Oil sells from 40 to. 80 dollars per gallon wholesale depending on quality, retail bottled 240 dollars per gallon when put in 375 ml bottles.

The  previous owners planted the trees some 15 plus years ago, and they are mostly Italian varietals ..Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino and Maurino. Also they mentioned that  there are a few Kalamata on the left side of the drive way. I hope this is helpful. It is best to pick before the frost although the olives may withstand one frost. The earlier you pick the grassier the flavor so timing is important.

So far, this year has been a good year. We plan to sell our crop this year, and prepare to press and bottle our crop next year. Take a look at how beautifully the olive groove is doing this year…
