The following day Alan and I had a short drive to Leonore's uncle and auntie's olive farm. We were told the kilometre sign where their house was opposite, and we had a welcoming commitee of seven people waiting outside for us. We were welcomed as long lost friends and immediatly taken inside from the heat, into a very rustic, but beautifully cool room. It had very old trinkets and other interesting items hanging on the walls, and from the ceiling, and even a gun that the "auntie" had found in the garden.
Well the drinks were drunk and it was time for us to meet their many animals. We had only met Willy the miniature Yorkshire terrier, and their were twelve other dogs to meet, for a start!
We were given fresh eggs to take home
Their piggy family
Loads of land for their goats
Having shown us there loving and cared for animals, it was now time to be impressed by their amount of land! A huge amount it was land too, the sum total of over 5000 olive trees, and an area of 400,000 square metres, which is 40 hectares, which is 400football pitches, how mental is that!
Right to the top of that hill!
Yes that hill!!!
