To me, the little poem “Odi et amo. Quare id faciam fortasse requiris. Nescio, sed fierisentio et excrucior” describes how difficult the world of olive oil can be. For my grandparents, Rosa and Meo, the farm did not give enough profit to make a living. So, their wish for me was that I should find a normal job with a monthly salary. One of the reasons for the difficulties was, and is, that the olive trees do not produce the same amount every year. You never know how much oil you can get from the trees. The land needs maintenance, and you don’t know if you get back the money you have invested in it. The last harvest (2014) was the worst in many, many years. According to an old farmer the worst since 1955. Some people think that you can just increase the price after a bad harvest. Small quantity – high price. But this business rule doesn’t really work for a small producer. Therefore, I made a choice to be able to get a larger amount of oil to offer my clients. I harvested for other people in the area. People, who do not harvest the olives in their property. Usually people, who have a job with a salary who do not have the time or the ambition to run a farm. Therefore, I went up to the mountains and I made this olive oil out of my harvest. Even though it was a small production, it was important for me to have something good to offer to the people who are following me in my constant effort to produce excellent olive oil of unique quality. As we take care of our olive trees, the fruit they produce care for our body, both internally and externally. Thus as in the past, the oil was used as a beauty ointment for the skin. Today, we offer cosmetics prepared with our oil.
