The Experience

Las olivas se cosechan entre mayo y julio en el hemisferio sur, esta cosecha la hacemos a mano para no dañar el árbol y se van llevando a la almazara para transformarlas en un aceite de calidad que estará listo en septiembre. También podemos cosechar una variedad de aceitunas aptas para mesa y prepararlas con un proceso casero que es menos tóxico para la tierra ya que no usa soda cáustica si no que agua y ceniza.

Los días en Aldea de Olivos fueron increíbles. Fue una experiencia totalmente nueva para mí, aprendí mucho sobre la elaboración del aceite en la almazara y el cuidado de la plantación. Las tareas son sencillas, los horarios bien definidos y el espacio muy cómodo. Agradezco mucho la oportunidad que tuve de conocer el lugar y a Johanna. Una persona amigable, educada, gentil y que preparada deliciosas comidas! :D ella fue muy amable en realizar opciones sin carne para mí. ¡Adore la oportunidad y la recomiendo totalmente!.
Gracias Johanna, sentirei saudades <3
