Ante - thanks for posting all those fantastic pictures. Modern times have lost so much quality of life and they don't even know it. Good olive oil is beyond price and I expect that yours is greater!!

It is allways good to have few extra hands.
Oh man, how much I would like to, but there's so MUCH I have to do these days. Christmas markets are about to start here soon, so maybe I will think of posting some pics of kinda different socialization.
Great picture guide Ante, I didn't have time to harvest apples this year, so they all rot on the trees.

OK. Let me keep my story rolling
Today is the Olive mill day
Car is loaded with baskets full of corps, canisters are ready, there is nothing to wait anymore. Allmost forget, junior is ready too

I have to note here that taking pictures isnt allowed in the mill but somehow few pix ended in my camera. Apologises for quality
The production line:

After washing olives are mashed in smooth paste in monitored proces where temperatures mustnt go over 37C to provide quality in minerals in oil. Later in process pasta goes in fast centrifuge are where oil is extacted from water and pasta leftowers:

Thanks to nice weather last 2-3 days everything is full with olives waiting to be produced. So will mine wait their turn sometime after midnight. Mills are working 24/7 this two months. I ll have to came back again in the morning to pick oil

In mean time I swirled some new soaps with fresh last week oil. Even for some members here

See ya tomorow with next round
Regards from Croatia

Very impressive. I see you have the same attitude towards the camera usage prohibition in factories.
Now if I could only remember where I stashed those pics from a nearby brewery.
