Customers in Sweden – SVERIGE! TACK!

We are proud to announce we have our first customers in Sweden. TACK!
More and more people are recommending Mother’s Garden. Try us.
We are a small, multi-award-winning premium olive oil business – specialists – based in The Priorat mountains of southern Catalonia. We may be small, but all is possible, always with provenance and the finest quality. Outstanding extra virgin olive oil from our village mill, to your door in Sweden for as little as kr135 a litre.
This price was possible because a group of five friends ordered a 3 litre tin each and we made one delivery to one address of 5×3 litre tins. Sharing a delivery this way is such a simple, delicious and a wonderful way to cut the cost, cut the transport and get the very best olive oil.

If you only order a 3 litre tin we offer great value. Check us out. We already have regular customers in Germany and Holland.

SUPERIOR QUALITY TEST RESULTS
FOR MOTHER’S GARDEN OLIVE OIL

November 2017 pressing
Our premium extra virgin olive oil is independently analyzed by a certified laboratory, to determine the quality.
These are the results for the latest MOTHER’S GARDEN harvest, and how they compare with the quality thresholds required to qualify as “extra virgin” olive oil (EVOO).  

ACIDITY % = 0.2 (LIMIT FOR EVOO 0.8)
This is an essential parameter of quality and, hence, purity and goodness.
To qualify as Extra Virgin an oil must have an acidity of less that 0.8 per cent.
Our olive oil has one of the lowest acidity levels in the world. 
Acidity value depends on many factors, such as the quality and the state and maturity of olive fruits and the care and speed of extraction. It is defined as a percentage as grams of free fatty acids (expressed as oleic acid, the main fatty acid present in olive oil) in 100 grams of oil.
PEROXIDE VALUE = 4.8 (LIMIT FOR EVOO 20)
The Peroxide Value is measurement of active oxidization degree in the oil. The very low value indicates that the EVOO is fresh, without oxygen effects, and that, hence, it will retain its goodness longer. Oxidation can be the result of natural aging or indicative of poor handling or heating during the refining process
K232 = 1.77 (LIMIT FOR EVOO 2.5)
K270 = 0.11 (LIMIT FOR EVOO 0.22)
DELTA K = 0.0 (LIMIT FOR EVOO 0.1)
These readings show UV absorption, give us information on quality and oxidative alteration and show, for example, that an olive oil is not a blend of new and older oils. These are fundamental markers for good quality extra virgin olive oil and help in identifying adulteration/fraud.
Remember, too, this olive juice (for that is what olive oil fundamentally is) comes from one village mill, is wholly traceable and fully certified. That is the truth. That is Mother’s Garden.
Always be 100 per cent sure of the source, freshness and quality of this extraordinary food. Look for full information, with press dates, registrations and analysis.

 

Just go to our online shop to order. We process this on our Mediterranean farm here in Catalonia and we can ship direct to your home.
If you are in Europe the online shop will, when you click on a photograph, change to your language and give full price details for delivery to your door.
Let us show you how wonderful our olive oil is, with full provenance, pressing date and quality. Essential, sustainable plant food full of flavour and goodness. The super-food at the heart of the Mediterranean diet.

Our 2018 (and now six times winner of gold standard in the coveted UK Great Taste Awards) premium olive oil is so important to more and more people.
The latest review on our website from a very happy customer –

It tastes delicious! I got talking to a colleague at work, who acts as a Hub, so I got a 3 litre tin. I love this olive oil, it is so green and fresh tasting with a nice peppery finish. The first thing I used it for for in the River Cafe Crab, chilli pasta recipe, you really need good olive oils for such a dish and it lifted it to a new height. I am hooked and will be back for more…”

We are ready for your autumn orders. And please tell friends how they can get it too. We rely so much on word of mouth, on sharing.

That is our simple, essential endeavour. More and more people understand and appreciate our multi award-winning olive oil with full provenance, quality and freshness.
2018 pricing unchanged.
3 litre tin £27 (fully recyclable)
6x500ml bottles £43.50 (fantastic gifts)

Sending appreciation and happy thoughts, as always, from us here at Mother’s Garden.

Loving our premium olive oil

Feedback means so much to us … This was our favourite last week.

“Dear Martin and Maggie
Just to let you know that the quality and taste of your delicious olive oil was highlighted recently.
Visiting my 90 year old mother, I decided to make her favourite sunny weather lunch – ciabatta topped with sliced vine tomato, mozzarella and basil, sprinkled with olive oil.
I didn’t realise that Mum had run out of Mother’s Garden olive oil so had to use a well-known Italian brand instead. It was awful – very pale and it tasted like sunflower oil. Yuck! Our lunch was spoiled.
Needless to say, Mum now has a fresh supply of Mother’s Garden oil with strict instructions to tell me when she needs more.”

Any more reviews of our premium fresh, single village mill, extra virgin olive oil? We love to know what you think.

Your olive oil – the facts

JUST HOW GOOD IS OUR ARBEQUINA OLIVE OIL?
People ask, quite rightly.
We define our arbequina olive oil as PREMIUM EXTRA VIRGIN, and this is why.
Below you will find the independent laboratory test results for this year’s harvest.

But first….
A label that states extra virgin is not, with respect, any guarantee of freshness, provenance or the best possible quality.
You may not find anything on the label that tells you where exactly the olive oil has come from, how old it is, if it is a blend of olive oils of various ages, or, indeed, even which country or countries are the original source of the fruit.
Please, always look for guarantees that it is from the most recent harvest – is there a pressing date?
Look for provenance – does it name the mill where it was pressed?
Does it state it is 100 per cent extra virgin?
Do you know what olive variety it is?
Our olive oil is 100 per cent arbequina variety, but some quality producers may blend different varieties from the same harvest.
There are producers and labels – like Mother’s Garden – who do provide all the vital information as well, of course, as some extraordinarily wonderful olive oil. You can source these direct or from independent fine food retailers. Explore.
And if you try one or more of these premium olive oils you will discover how special, nutritious and delicious this superfood really can be.
