Dos Aguilas Holiday Sale
Dec. 10, 10am to 2pm
We harvested more than eight tons of olives on November 7 and 8 and milled them on site with the mobile Mill on Wheels. We ended up with 200 gallons of oil. Subsequent tests showed our 2016 oil to be .04 percent free fatty acidity. The standard for the California Olive Oil Council is .50, we are well below that. This measurement proves that our oil is the highest quality extra virgin.
In addition to producing this healthful product we have learned that for each 375 ml bottle of oil produced seven pounds of carbon is removed from the atmosphere and sequestered in the soil. In total 17,600 pounds or 8.8 tons of carbon was offset this year alone.
If you are looking for a locally produced food item that improves your overall health and benefits our climate then look no further.
At our online store www.dosaguilasoliveoil.com/store you can order our award winning oil at Holiday discounted prices. We also offer free delivery in Santa Cruz and mid county for the season.
On Saturday, December 10 we will be having an open house in the barn where we held the curing classes for those of you who wish to come out and pick up some gifts for the holiday season.
New for the holidays are 500 ml Miron Glass bottles which have special qualities that actually help preserve foods. No need to keep your oil in these out of the sunlight and they look elegant on the countertop.
So if you grow weary of malls and internet shopping come on out for some farm therapy. Roger will be there from 10am to 2 pm and he will be bringing samples of olive cures that weren’t ready for the curing classes; Kalamata style, Lacto-fermented and Tuscan Salt/Oil cured olives will be offered for tasting along with our finished oil that will have settled and clarified.
Regardless if we hear or see you this season we wish you all the happiest of holidays and a prosperous and healthful new year.
