Despite a few set-backs, we’ve successfully produced our first limited-edition Casuals-Swans batch of olive oil!
Unfortunately the olive press had some mechanical problems meaning that the olive-picking date had to be postponed and the only available date was Mother’s Day.
A huge thanks to Craig and Jenny Allen who put in a huge amount of work to make this fundraiser possible.
Also thank you to all those that changed their plans at short notice and gave up their morning on Mother’s Day to come and help pick olives.
We finished the morning with around 950kg’s of olives which were pressed into approximately 180 litres of premium single-press organic olive oil.
The next step is to bottle and sell the product to raise money for the club. The bottles will soon be available to purchase for $10 each, exceptionally good value for a product of this quality.
Sell them on to family, friends or work colleagues, keep them for your own consumption or give them as gifts.
With this as a successful trial run, we plan to go bigger and better next year!
