We want to send positive thoughts and appreciation to you from us here at the Mother’s Garden farm, our home for 20 years, and to give you an update on how things are for us at this profound time of uncertainty and reflection. We so hope you are keeping well and managing the best you can. If you want to get in touch, please do.
We also want to let you know we have stock in the UK of our most recent harvest olive oil and can, at the time of writing, supply direct to your home. In March we managed to prepare and send a shipment. Our brother and UPS are working with us to get any orders out to you. If this situation changes we will tell you immediately. If you are part of a HUB – please check with us or your co-ordinator regarding group orders/collection.
Thank you for all the messages of concern. We are spending virtually all our time on the farm, understandably, with only infrequent food shopping trips and collections from the mill under very strict controls. Our community here in the mountains of the Priorat, southern Catalonia, has been very respectful of the lockdown. The people, though obviously anxious as are we all, remain positive. Yes, music from balconies. This is a very tactile society, so the sense of distance is hard to bear, but they are doing it.
We are very fortunate to have our son Joe at home with us. He began his degree in Political Science at the Vrije University in Amsterdam last September, but was able to return here before the lockdown and is continuing to study online for the moment. Our daughter, Ella, is on a 6-month work visa in Singapore and staying with her boyfriend and his family. She is well and able to write and work online also. Meanwhile we carry on pruning the olives, planting loads of veg and reading, writing, playing music and catching up on unfinished projects!
If you wish to order then an email back to us is ideal. Please note our main telephone line number is not working at the moment, but we are on our mobile(0034 677 708115) and online.
Meanwhile, we want to offer something different, over and above the goodness of olive oil, something to counter the weight of news. The farm is full of nature tales and burgeoning with life and song as spring dawns. Martin will be posting a further nature podcast in the coming days and we will let you know when it is live. Join him on the land as it awakens.

Keep safe. Keep strong.

New World Economic Forum research shows Spain is the healthiest nation, and that diet with extra virgin olive oil at its heart is a significant reason why.
The Mediterranean approach to food, significantly plant-based, with premium fresh extra virgin olive oil as a vital constant and so, no wonder, people want this at the heart of their diets too.
You can do just that, with Mother’s Garden.
Our mission is to bring you the exact same premium, quality, award-winning, fresh extra virgin olive oil as we place at the heart of our farmhouse kitchen table. No compromise.
This from the World Economic Forum report which praises Spain’s approach to health care and food –
“The Mediterranean diet popular in Spain and Italy is high in vegetables, nuts, fruit, fish and healthy grains, as well as the ubiquitous olive oil. Numerous studies have shown such a diet has many medical benefits, particularly in respect to heart disease.”
Spain is, by the the way, the largest producer of olive oil in the world by a very long way. That is no coincidence
Olive oil and health, olive oil and your heart.
