Gearing up for Summer in Italy and Olive Harvest 2018

Looking forward to heading it Italy in only a couple short weeks to spend the entire month of July there.  There has been so many updates at Villa la Castagnola di Borio. anwordpress post 3d the olive farm at Vico del Gargano in Puglia, Italy.   The olive farm is just about ready for summer.   The smell of the Adriatic Sea in the air and the quiet hills of Vico del Gargano bring me such calm and peaceful feelings.



The new wood fence going up and clean up at the farm ensures a wonderful 2018 olive harvest.

The spring has brought green trees which will be bountiful for a fall olive harvest.
