So our farm, Hopeful Ranch, has finally received some much needed rain, after months of barely a drop of moisture. Last week I drove from Sydney through Lithgow to Rylstone, then from there through Bathurst to our farm, covering about 730kms in 2 days. What I saw along the way was heartbreaking. Everywhere was so damn dry. Like a desert. Peoples farms had turned to dust. Animals were in terrible condition, emaciated, starving & thirsty. Even the native fauna was struggling, and the roads were littered with the carcasses of hundreds dead animals that had been looking for the last bits of edible vegetation on the roadside. Livestock was also everywhere on the roads, dead and alive, often escaped from their paddocks searching desperately for a feed. So many people that produce the food that we put on our table & in our bellies are doing it so very tough in NSW at the moment. Farming is hard at the best of times, and soul destroying at the worst of times. So next time you complain about how much good food costs, please think about what the true cost really is. Support the growers and producers in your state. Buy local. Go to farmers markets. Be interested in provenance. And please don’t bitch about the rain. Some folks depend on it for their livelihood.
Shots of new season unfiltered ALTO Leccino EVOO for breakfast. Starting the day right. 💚💚💚 #alto #evoo #harvest2018 #evoooneverything #healthy

#Repost from @olivequeenoz using @RepostRegramApp - The olive harvest is over for another year. The table olives are in their brine. The new season extra virgin olive oils are in their tanks. The preliminary organoleptic assessments are done. The Novello recipe has been decided. And we are all breathing a huge sigh of relief. Last night we toasted to the hard work & tremendous effort of everyone involved in this year’s harvest, with some appropriately dirty martinis. We thanked our lucky stars that our crop survived the unforgiving weather conditions that this year threw our way, even if our fruit volumes were significantly reduced. Olive trees are tough as they come, and in terms of farming in our patch of NSW, they are well suited to this drought ridden land & poor quality soil. Because aside from our olive trees, which provide a welcome silver green shimmer amongst the brown, our farm is quite literally a dustbowl. So we look forward to sharing the fruits of our labour with everyone when we release the ALTO Novello & then the new season 2018 harvest extra virgin olive oils very soon. #alto #evoo #olives #harvest2018
