We’ve spoken before about going to  the Cave (the wine cellar/co-op) and filling up with wine from the ‘petrol pump’. Well, our local olive farm is just the same.

February is when this year’s vintage is ready. Pick up the little can and motor down the road to Coustellet and ‘Moulin de Saint Augustin’. There the very friendly husband and wife team fill up your can with the ‘fresher than fresh’ olive oil. There is also a little gift shop which sells all things olive and, liquorice!
