Get set for new harvest!

The final countdown to our November olive harvest is on – the busiest time of the year here at Mother’s Garden and across the valley.

We will be working flat out through November to harvest, press and send our fresh pressing of our multi-award-winning premium EV olive oil to the UK.

As always, with all fingers crossed, the aim is to have this finest natural, sustaining superfood from tree to you in a matter to a few weeks, in time for Christmas and New Year feasting.

We always give the pressing dates – full information is essential – and now we have seven gold standards in the coveted UK Great Taste Awards. That is why more and more people are finding their way to the tree that is Mother’s Garden.

Watch this space – and get in touch if you have any questions. We are here to help.

Gold standard once again

We are delighted to announce Mother’s Garden has again been judged gold star standard in the world’s most important food awards.
Thank you to all our customers. Mother’s Garden continues to grow the best way possible – through recommendations by you.
We have stock of this latest GREAT TASTE gold star harvest so please get in touch if you would like some.
These are such uncertain times for all of us, and we will tell you more when we finally know more about the implications for our small business of the UK leaving the European Union.
But for now we send this simple good news and our appreciation for your support and custom.
Keep well.

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.

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.

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…”
