Harvesting 2010

January gentle rains bring plumper horses grazing lush grass along the lanes while the olives finish their maturation into what will bring a mellow olive oil.
As Darro also harvests for a stronger olive oil (California Mission Classic), most of the orchard has already been harvested. All oil has been to the lab for not only the standard extra virgin olive oil analysis but includes a test to rate the polyphenol levels. We are VERY pleased with these results! High polyphenol levels enhance health benefits of the olive oil to the body and also helps preserve nutritional values in the foods that being cooked.
