FRUIT SHARE SCHEME FROM LA JIMENA, SPAIN
For the 5th year we are able to offer a share of the produce of La Jimena. Run by Mathis Rosenbusch and his wife, this organic smallholding in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada produces its own olives, olive oil, nuts and citrus fruit. The olive oil is being pressed this month and the citrus (oranges, clementines and lemons) are often only picked a few days before Mathis sets off from Spain to deliver them direct to us. The feedback from customers who have bought a share, has been fantastic. The olive oil has a distinctive nutty aroma, the citrus bursts with the scent and flavour that only comes from freshly picked fruit. “It is the nearest you can get to having your own olive/citrus grove and going and picking them yourself”, says Dominic.
There is more choice this year, and we will carry a stock of oil in the Farm shop so when you run out and can’t wait until winter 2008 you can replenish!
Visit their website at www.lajimena.de or click on the title above. You can also go to the farm and take a holiday, we keep promising ourselves we will go, but have yet to make it. I know from friends who have visited that it is simply lovely.
