Two Olive Farms in Provence

Olive tree groves are a distinctive feature of the landscape all across Provence - and olive oil is ubiquitous in the local cuisine (not to mention Marseille soap!) So when we received invitations recently to visit two olive estates in the area, it was impossible to resist.

Both are producing very high quality AOP oils that are light years away from the el cheapo mass-produced Spanish stuff on sale at Tescos. Click here to read more.
