In Aubocassa there is a reigning philosophy that no olive should touch, nor be collected from the ground. To achieve this, we employ an umbrella and vibration system, which shakes the olive tree, causing most of the olives to fall. The rest is harvested with manual power tools operated by qualified staff.
Harvested olives are immediately taken to the olive mill where they are washed and defoliated and any other branch or debris that may be present is removed. Then the milling process starts.
