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.

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.

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).  

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.
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)
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.

Our 2018 (and now six times winner of gold standard in the coveted UK Great Taste Awards) premium olive oil is so important to more and more people.
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.

That is our simple, essential endeavour. More and more people understand and appreciate our multi award-winning olive oil with full provenance, quality and freshness.

Mother’s Garden documentaries

Channel 4 has now made the two hour-long documentaries about Mother’s Garden available online in the UK.
Put the kettle on then click here to watch them.
Filmed during the early years of our adventure, they tell the family story and explain why we came to this small farm in the mountains of Catalonia 17 years ago.
The time has flown, of course, but the feelings and appreciations are exactly the same. What still matters is time – time for family, good food, nature and community. We count our blessings and and ever grateful to our families for their understanding and support.
We continue to write, to spread the goodness that is fresh extra virgin olive oil, and to welcome guests from all over the world to our holiday cottage on the farm. Perhaps you might like to come. We are thinking that 2018 may be our last year of running the cottage as a holiday let, so think on.
Keep well.
Martin and Maggie
