Old Olive Press

Saturday, April 24, 2010
When we were in Sorrento we visited a small family farm.  They had the usual animals, horses, goats, pigs and ducks (or were they geese?)  But their main crop was olives.  And they produced their own olive oil.  This was an old press from years gone by.  They are now modern with huge electric crushers and presses.  And to help pay for the expensive machinery, they also press oil for their neighbors.
