extra virgin olive oil
Plant-based goodness, sharing table and learning from nature. A life, a tree, a farm in all honesty.

Come and Stay!
Our three-bedroom holiday cottage is now up and running.We have just welcomed our first visitors of 2023. We can accommodate up to 6 people. Get in touch about coming to stay in the Catalan hills, amongst nature and only 30 minutes from the Mediterranean. Pool, walks and sunshine, all nestled in a famous wine region.
We – Martin and Maggie, alongside our daughter and son Ella and Joe – have been farming arbequina olives and living an adventure in the Priorat mountains of Catalunya, south of Barcelona, since January 2001. But the story is more than olive oil. It is a way of life. We moved here in search for time as a family, community and nature. Channel 4 made two Mother’s Garden documentaries – see series 1 and 3 for the behind the scenes of our family journey - and Martin has written two books, No Going Back and Shaking The Tree.Read more
