The taste test – we win again

From another new and very happy customer….

“Hi! I am staying with my mum at the moment, and received a bottle of your olive oil from her for Christmas. My husband did a blind taste test for myself and our two children, with 5 different olive oils . Yours came out on top for all of us! “

Why not taste the difference yourself? Go to our shop or get in touch. We are here to help you discover the finest premium extra virgin olive oil and all that means for health, goodness and delicious flavour.

We can supply Europe wide and beyond. Orders this year include the UK, The Netherlands, Ireland and Germany too

New harvest available NOW

Our delicious, just pressed new harvest olive oil – premium extra virgin arbequina from our village mill – is selling fast.

Hundreds of customers across the UK and Ireland now have it at the heart of their table and daily diet. Would you like some of the finest olive oil?

We offer our olive juice (for that, simply, is what it is) in 3 litre tins and also in cases of 6x500ml glass bottles which make wonderful presents.

Just go to our online shop. When you get to the basket it will define all the delivery costs before you commit to buy. If you have any questions at all we are here on the Mother’s Garden farm to help.

Remember too that the delivery charge is flat rate, so if you share a delivery with family, friends, colleagues, neighbours, this does not change. And when you have a combined order of more than £125 there is no charge at all (UK only).

Freshness matters as much as provenance and premium quality. We are wholly committed to all three. And we would love to share it with you.

NEW – The 2019 Mother’s Garden Podcasts

HAPPY NEW YEAR one and all, from us here on the farm at Mother’s Garden, a breeze away from the Mediterranean, home of your premium extra virgin olive oil.
Here is something new for 2019 – a podcast of Mother’s Garden farm life, a weekly wander across the land and through a host of topics, not least nature and food. It will be very much a local view, intended to give a flavour of this life, this land, but it will also include opinion of global matters, essentially ecology and our collective home, Earth.
I think of these podcasts as having the title Where I Stand, as I – we – seek to ground ourselves amid the obsessions of our collective daily lives and the relentless torrent of news, most of it negative. An antidote, if you will, certainly a chance to step away for a moment – about ten minutes once a week – to perhaps get a sense of Mother’s Garden and all it means to us and everyone who has ever been here.
So, peace to all. And with hope for health and sustaining fulfilments in 2019 here is the first of the podcasts.

If you have another phone or want to listen via a computer, click here.
Please consider following, and also sharing this.

Oh – two further rather important things.
IF YOU HAVE YET TO ORDER NEW HARVEST OLIVE OIL we have stock and it can be with you in a couple of days. Just email us or go to our online shop.
AND FEEDBACK – all your thoughts regarding the new olive oil and, indeed, the podcasts are most welcome. We really value you and your opinions.
Keep well. Maybe consider a visit to Mother’s Garden this year.

Give someone a bottle this festive season.
– they make perfect gifts.
3 litre tins £27, case of 6x500ml glass bottles £43.50.
Flat rate delivery charge of £10.75 for orders under £120.

The cold
Dipping winter temperatures will mean that the olive oil will thicken, but this will ease at room temperature after a few hours. The cold in no way affects the quality of your premium, super fresh extra virgin olive oil.

The tins
While continuing to supply 500ml glass bottles in cases of six, for larger volumes we switched from plastic containers to single size 3-litre tins this year, to cut the volume of plastic in the world.
We also sought to use high quality, thin tin to vitally reduce waste and weight.
This has been a success. But one issue has been the ease with which these tins can dent.
We strive to do all we can to protect the tins, but ask for your understanding if they have are not always perfect on arrival. We stress that the fundamental – the quality of the premium olive oil we are supplying to you – is not affected at all.
We keep labelling to a minimum for ease of recycling, so please do this!
 

NEW HARVEST – TAKING ORDERS NOW

ORDER YOUR SUPER-FRESH MOTHER’S GARDEN NEW HARVEST PREMIUM EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL – STRAIGHT FROM THE MILL
 
It is all happening! The olives are being picked and the mill is in full swing – it is the annual harvest at Mother’s Garden and throughout our region of the Priorat in Southern Catalunya. We are working hard to get newly pressed olive juice to you as soon as possible.
We are taking orders now for December deliveries, so please get back to us as soon as you can. As always, there is limited stock, so first come first served.

Contact us or go to our online shop

UNFILTERED OR NOT? (Unfiltered olive oil only available in 3 litre tins). If you want unfiltered we need your order by Sunday evening, November 18th. Unfiltered is even more vibrant and peppery, but because it has fruit particles in it we recommend it is consumed or filtered within three months. Filtered olive oil is slightly softer but also bursting with all the goodness and delicious flavour. We recommend filtered olive oil is consumed within a year of bottling.
The aim as always is to deliver to customers before Christmas. We will pull out all the stops to do this but cannot promise (we haven’t failed yet).
As you can see above, the pricing is unchanged.
3 litre tins, £27 each (filtered or unfiltered)
Case of 6x500ml bottles £43.50 (only filtered available)
No delivery charge for orders of more than £120. Normal flat rate charge is £10.75 currently. We regret this may increase in January.
PLEASE CONSIDER, in these uncertain times for all of us, buying more volume and storing it.
Buy with friends, family, colleagues, neighbours – see our hubs page. You cut down on transport cost and impact and because the olive juice is so fresh it will store well if kept in a cool place.
Hundreds of our valued customers love to receive the new harvest, the zest of freshly pressed Mother’s Garden premium extra virgin olive oil.
So, get back to us or go to our online shop.
 
We can supply Europe-wide, but deliveries will take one week longer.
 
If you need a top up right now, we have a few 3 litre tins of our award-winning, delicious olive oil from the last harvest still available.  It is still really fruity and beautiful. We have no glass bottles of this currently in stock.

We send all good wishes from Mother’s Garden – and please note, we will be opening the cottage for visitors again in 2019.

Plant food wisdom

The need for a more plant-based diet such as the Mediterranean tradition is becoming clearer every day, with (we humbly recommend) premium fresh olive oil at the heart of it.
Now there is new research regarding cellular ageing. See here for more detail on a new report highlighting how nutritious diets have a lengthening effect on chromosomal structures called telomeres, which help protect against chronic disease.
If you are among the many exploring vegan or vegetarian dishes you will find many recipes include the finest olive oil which, if sourced carefully, is loaded with antioxidants and has many health benefits. And it is the juice of a fruit, remember, so the fresher the better – note the beautiful scent and flavour. 
We at Mother’s Garden here on our Mediterranean farm are very happy to answer any of your questions and, of course, to supply you.
But whichever olive juice you use, from whatever country, just be sure you know exactly where it came from, that it is premium quality, and the label tells you when it as pressed. For maximum goodness you need freshness as well as full provenance and premium quality.
And we also recommend keeping an eye on the Olive Oil Times for latest news. We are all still learning about this amazing, essential plant food.

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.

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.
