Step into the heart of a Shami or Maghrebi olive grove and embrace the timeless tradition of olive harvesting alongside local farmers. Experience the rhythm of rural life as we join hands with the locals in hand-picking ripe olives, learning the age-old techniques passed down through generations. Discover the art of olive oil production as we observe each stage of the process, from pressing the olives to curing them, guided by the wisdom of our experienced hosts.

After a morning of harvesting and learning, we’ll take a well-deserved break with a charming village picnic nestled under the shade of ancient olive trees. Here, amidst the tranquil beauty of the orchard, we’ll feast on a delicious spread of local delicacies, freshly baked bread, and of course, the star of the show—our very own freshly pressed olive oil. It’s a moment to savour, as we share stories and laughter with newfound friends, surrounded by the rustic charm of village life.

As the day draws to a close, we’ll bid farewell to the olive groves, but not without a special memento to cherish. Each guest will depart with their own jar of freshly cured olives, a tangible reminder of our shared experience and the enduring bond between people, land, and tradition.
