We are a small producer of extra virgin olive oil based in Poundbury. Our olive grove has sixty 500-year old trees in South Pelion, Greece, overlooking the Gulf of Pagasitikos.
As a 100% natural product, which derives solely from the pressing of the olives with purely mechanical methods, it maintains its biochemical properties, including the "good" monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamins (Vitamin E) and antioxidant components, such as polyphenols. The best practices of picking, selecting, taking to the press within 48 hours, cold extraction and bottling are observed throughout the process. Knowledge of the value of olive oil has increased significantly in the last few years, There is now documented scientific data regarding its health benefits. No pesticides are used in the cultivation of our olives.
The parameters for olive oil quality are set by EEC Regulation 2568/91 (1991) and the FDA allowing producers of olive oil to place a health claim on its products.
In November 2014 we produced 392 kilos of excellent extra virgin olive oil which very easily met the EEC regulations. It was transported to Poundbury in December, was left to settle, then decanted and bottled.
It si now available in 500ml and 250ml bottles bearing the chemical analysis. The bottles are priced at £10 and £5.50 respectively. The oil is fruity with a buttery taste and peppery finish.
Available at: Events and festivals.
