Hi, This is our first year we have picked the olives from our trees, don't laugh, we only have three trees, but they have yielded almost 30 kilos. Now we don't know if the local oil mills will accept such a small amount. Has anybody any experience of how the mills work, i.e. cost of processing the olives, or will they buy these from us or even trade for oil. Any help gratefully received. buona giornata a tutti.   Frank White.

Hi bunterboy, We have water about 5-7 metres under our garden, so we intend digging the old fashioned way, buckets and spades, no borehole!
