October is olive harvest time! Learn about olive trees, picking olives and making oil. We have open positions now for 15 October 2017. The harvest lasts 2 to 3 weeks. Welcome to Croatia!


We are looking for volunteers who like to be part of our olive harvest experience this fall. Our farm and trees are located on the island of Korcula in Croatia, one of the places to visit this year according to the NY Times. The harvest takes place in the second half of October and is a very special happening. The whole island is taken over by olive fever, olives are all people talk about. As this is a special time, we work hard, but also reward ourselves with things like even better home cooked food than usual and outdoor movie nights.


We, Franka and Marcus, started this farm in the fall of 2014. We are still developing every day, turning more forest into farm land. We grow our own vegetables, we have 200 olive trees, some fruit trees and a vinyard. The farm is 15 minutes away from sea by foot, and one and a half hour walk from town where shops are. It is not luxurious, but that is compensated for by the beauty and tranquility of the nature and the taste of our fresh food.
