Farmers for centuries have crushed small quantities of olives with lemons for use in their own homes. All the olives are harvested by hand and the citrus picked at a perfect ripeness. The olives and fruit are crushed using a tradition stone mill. This crushing produces a paste which is pressed with low pressure and the juice centrifuged to release the water from the oil. Only the oil from this first pressing is used, as it is the most intense and flavorful. This rare olive oil is golden green in color with a wonderful citrus aroma.”  Rating olive oil to buy.  Read extra virgin olive oil reviews and ratingsBuy extra virgin olive oil online.
