I took 550kg of olives from work to be processed today at the York Olive Oil Co. Have to say I have never seen the process before other than on the net. it is very cool and I highly recommend anyone who can scrape together 250kg or so with friends and neighbors go visit them and do it. The owners Arnaud and Jenny are awesome to spend time with and very willing to share their knowledge.

I met some very cool people there, particularly two women who collect olives from verges and parks, they called it urban foraging and bring olives to be pressed each year - they pressed 250kg - not bad for foraging!!

Wow, Id love to see the process. So Im assuming the York Olive Oil Co is open to public to process their olives for a fee?

Correct, open to the public for viewing and purchases through their shop as well as processing. They have a minimum charge that is why you need a decent batch (say 200 + kilos) to make it worthwhile. We got just over 17% oil return so pretty much 20 litres per 100kg of olives.
