OLIVE HARVEST EXPERIENCE ON A TUSCAN FARM

THE IDEA
An olive harvest is one of the most fascinating experiences you can enjoy in Tuscany. It is a wonderful way to learn a lot not only about the local wine & food traditions but also about the local culture. Those who tried it report that the atmosphere of a working oil mill and the enthusiasm of olive farmers during the harvesting season is something definitely unique. You can experience the olive harvest and adopt an olive tree!



THE PROGRAM
:

We arrange olive harvest experiences for visitors to Tuscany in the second half of October, November and December. You can participate in harvesting on a charming olive farm, learn about the features of an excellent extra virgin olive oil, see a working oil mill and get your own certificate of adoption of an olive tree.

FURTHER DETAILS:

• Our olive harvest experience takes place in the morning;
• You meet our local guide and have an introduction to the world of olive groves before acting!
• You start collecting olives from some selected trees assisted by your guide and by the olive farmer for approximately 1 hour;
• With your guide, you relax in the tasting room of the farm and sample some freshly pressed extra virgin olive oil and other local products in a buffet lunch;
• You receive a personal certificate of adoption of your olive tree, which also gives you the right to buy olive oil from the farm at an exclusive rate;
• Finally, you visit a nearby oil mill and see all the machinery involved in the process, to understand the squeezing process in detail.

NOTES: Iif the olive farm is not harvesting on the day of your visit, the olive harvest experience takes place on an alternative farm nearby.

A personal insurance is necessary for the harvesting experience. Rates may vary depending on your nationality and age.

The oil mill is located near Chianni and Terricciola, in the area of the Pisan hills, well known in Tuscany as a great area of origin of superb extra virgin olive oil.

This offer is not valid for children.
