The olive trees at Manna House are cared for and involved in our everyday throughout the year. Admired and told how beautiful they are; kindly checked for little problems and included in the planning of every working day.

One of the family.

The olives for our oils are hand picked and then pressed at 25°C less than 8 hours after picking at a family press about 15 minutes away.

hand picking olives
Many hands make light work.

Each can in the batch is individually numbered and dated. They are all extra virgin with an acidity of either 2.5 or 3.0% 

The land and trees at Manna House have not seen pesticide, herbicide or fungicide for over ten years and the previous owners had cared for the land for well over 100 years.

We are on the land working with and loving  the trees on a daily basis and the oil is made with care and love.

We all know that olive oil is good for you; the Mediterranean diet, high in olive oil is associated with a reduced risk of cardia-vascular disease and liver disease and the  reduction of  cholesterol.  Olive oil is high in anti-oxidants, the Picual variety in particular has a very high proportion and has an enormous proportion of oleic acid, 80%.
