I participated in the Olive grove experience. A very informative and interesting tour. I loved the olive oil tasting and most of all I loved the home-made marmalade. Christian and Jeanette were our hosts and I could not have asked for better hosts. Keep up the good work.

Jeanette's and Christian's passion for this venture is evident and impressed us. Obviously there is a whole team to whom we wish the very best of climate conditions and luck. Thanks for a very informative morning in the fresh air.

The olive tasting and local produce were fantastic. The fields and the environment quiet and relaxing. The farmer and his family were really friendly.

We had a great time learning about the rural countryside and farming life in Malta, we got to taste local brewed coffee, pumpkin jam, wine and of course Olive Oli. The farm is in a lovely spot with a great view!
