In the olive grove will learn all about the cultivation of olive trees, the traditional way of picking, which is still manually even nowadays, and about the process of making olive oil in the oil mill. "Liquid gold" from Šolta has been winning gold medals for years, and recently it has received its designation of origin on the European Union level.

Day in the olive grove is not complete without lunch in the fresh air with a glass of local red wine, and the completion of harvest is usually celebrated with traditional peka - a slow cooked dish under the lid in the open fieplace.

 

Since many olive growers are also the owners of the rental apartments it is possible to receive a discount on accommodation in exchange for help in the harvest or to take home a few bottles of premium olive oil that you yourself helped produce. We are here to connect you to the olive growers and help you arrange the perfect "working" vacation. For more information, send us an inquiry to This email address is being protected from spambots.
