These organic olives are handpicked from a family orchard in Argolida, Peloponnese, Greece, the region best known for producing olives in the whole world. The olives are then sorted to ensure quality and then further sorted by size. Next, they are cured in barrels of brine made with local fresh spring water and local Cretan sea salt. Finally, the olives are pitted before being put into glass jars. Because they are cured using traditional age-old methods, and not by using caustic soda like many of the olives on the market, not only are they healthier but also fresher and better tasting.
