Between Christmas and new year, olive picking time arrived in our area. This last campaign we have had a really good crop, the work was harder than other years before. The weather was sunny, but the wind hindered our canvas work. These canvas are using during the harvesting to cover the field around the olive trees. Then, the pickers threw the olives directly towards canvas and from there, the olives go to into our front loader to finally put them into the trailer.
Olives tree are very tall this year, so we have had to cut few brands (we use a Paterlini pneumatic scissors) to make easier our work with the Campagnola pneumatic harvester. At the end, our trailer was full and we had to be careful to put the olives into the trailer during the last day.
