Hello lovely people – Wishing you a happy and hopeful New Year, and to lift the spirits we have delicious NEW HARVEST olive oil for you.
A sincere thank you to everyone who buys our fresh, premium arbequina olive oil and who understands the importance of freshness, provenance and premium quality when it comes to the original superfood – the juice of the olive.
On this website you will find our 2017 pricing, details of our holiday cottage on the farm, and stories of this life. We would love to hear from you, and to welcome you here. We are just an hour and half south of Barcelona.
We are currently updating our database of regular customers, so if you are already a customer and there are details we need to amend please let us know. All feedback most welcome. We value your opinions highly and if there are any suggestions please offer them. Remember, too, that you can post reviews of our olive oil on the online shop. Perhaps you might like to follow the example of many of our long-term customers and combine with friends/family/colleagues/neighbours and share a delivery, hence saving on transport costs and impact. We call these our HUBS.
Whatever olive oil you use – and there are many excellent small producers out there – be sure you know when it was pressed, where it was pressed and that is it premium standard, the watchwords being freshness, provenance and quality.
And if you want to know more about this remarkable superfood, we also have copies of THE OLIVE OIL DIET book by Judy Ridgway and Dr Simon Poole – “The most scientifically comprehensive book on one of nature’s best medicines” (Dr Aseem Malhotra, cardiologist). See our online shop – £12.75 with olive orders.
There has been a rush for our discount bottles – cut price to celebrate our fifth GREAT TASTE gold award – and now they are all gone. Oh.
But do not despair! More will arrive in the UK in December. Get in touch if you would like some of this new harvest – award-winning olive oil full of life and goodness, from tree to you with a few weeks!
And all orders received before January 1 will be at current prices. Very sadly, the decline of the UK pound means we will have to increase our prices in 2017. Watch this space. Better still, get ahead and pre-order New Harvest now. GET IN TOUCH!

Meanwhile the shadows lengthen as the farm eases towards winter. Our olives are all in but the other village families are still harvesting and the cooperative mill is a hive of activity, blooming with the scent of fresh olive juice.
A burst of rain has brought the usual enchantments, not least wild mushrooms. People are wandering the valley with baskets under their arms, including our friend Enric who gifted us four different kinds.
The talk is of a hard winter ahead, but for now everything seems to be holding its breath. We shall see, and I will tell you.
Keep well. And get in touch if you ever want to know more about Mother’s Garden, or to visit.

If you read some of the coverage by the national media of what has been a very difficult year for Mediterranean olive growers, you could think there was no premium quality olive oil available in the UK at sensible cost. NOT TRUE!
See our online shop – quality, provenance, freshness, flavour and goodness for as little as £9.70 a litre delivered to your door – or please get in touch if you have any questions about the extraordinary juice of the timeless, wonderful winter fruit, the olive.
Perfect for tapas snacks, to drizzle on steamed vegetables, steamed fish, poached eggs and, yes, salads.
All best wishes from Mother’s Garden.
Does freshness matter? Absolutely, that is why every container of Mother’s Garden award-winning olive oil carries the pressing and bottling dates (handwritten at our farmhouse kitchen table).
We would love to hear from you.
The UK and world media is full of stories – like this one – about a disastrous olive harvest in some countries. Some people are taking this to mean they cannot source the finest olive oil. THEY CAN. YOU CAN.
Some small, high quality producers and village cooperatives, like us, are managing to supply. You can have your new harvest olive oil by the end of this week, and if you order with us today you can it at 2014 prices.
The crisis has affected prices, but even with our small price increase tomorrow we are still able to supply our premium arbequina olive oil, just bottled, for under £10 a litre delivered to your home if you buy a 5 litre. Buy more and the price drops. Share a delivery with family/friends/colleagues and it will drop some more.
Support the small producers and the fine food outlets. The finest olive oil is still available at a sensible price.
Get in touch – any questions we will do all we can to help.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL fresh from the press is an extraordinary food, bursting with flavour and goodness.
We have just picked, pressed, bottled and shipped.
Would you like to enjoy some?
Place an order on our online shop. We aim to deliver in England, Scotland and Wales during the week beginning December 15.
And with this year’s harvest our village cooperative mill has been awarded second prize in the coveted ROMANICO ESENCIA AWARDS in Spain, given to the best arbequina producers across the country.
Mother’s Garden – quality, provenance and freshness. Share this please and spread the word…. and the wonderful, simple, essential food that is olive oil.
Does cold affect olive oil? No.
At this time of year lots of customers order new harvest olive oil from us for winter feasts – for dipping bread, drizzling onto steamed vegetables or fish, onto poached eggs, there are so many lovely ways to use it, enjoying the flavour and goodness.
But because of the colder temperatures in the UK and northern Europe your new harvest olive oil may have formed into white clouds or clumps in transit. This is absolutely normal.
This does not, we stress, affect the quality of your olive oil at all and it will clear at normal room temperature.
Ideally, buy fresh olive oil in a larger container, keep this in a cool place out of direct sunlight, and decant what you need into a 250ml or 500ml dispenser to place at the heart of your table for every meal.
We happily leave our oil on the cold pantry floor until we are ready to enjoy it.
A new shipment is now on the way, so why not try some?
