Took myself on a walk over to Azzuro today, to get a bottle of their lovely own-grown and pressed olive oil. There are enough olives on the trees here for them to be pressed this year, and Azzuro will do it for them. Small growers’ olives are pressed together, so it is a blend, but they are all organically produced olives, and each farm’s crop is weighed, so that each farm gets an equivalent percentage of the oil from the pressing.
