As Livermore is a Wine area we also have a great aount of olive trees and a few poeple in the area that teach how to press the olive for oil, one day I will take one of two of the classes.

Hi Elizabeth,

Most growers who take their olives to a good pressing facility get around six or seven quarst of oil for every hundred pounds of olives. There's actually an impressive amount of oil in olives.

So how much olive oil do you get from 500 lbs of olives?

I always wondered how olive oil was made. It sounds as though folks there tend to grow there own olives and hang on to there oil. Wouldn't that be a wonderful thing if we could do that here in the States?
