Honest Toil is a small project run by Tom & Juli. They're based just south of Kyparissia, on the west coast of the Peloponnese, Greece and bring extra virgin olive oil from their village here to the UK. They are more than just a business, Honest Toil is also the history of their wanderings and a way to connect their homes & families. For this reason, they take it especially seriously.
While harvesting in their own small groves, they also work together with other smallholders and the local press, supporting the local economy and making sure that the high quality extra virgin olive oil from the area doesn't end up blended into commercial oils by big companies.
As the two of them have a uniquely direct control over the whole process, from picking to pressing and packing, we always have the fresh oil available by January each year.
The fact that we’re so hands-on also enables them to have sustainability at the core of the project. The olives used for the oil come exclusively from small family farms, and are hand-harvested using traditional methods, without unnecessary strain on the tree or the disruption of wildlife. The olives are pressed in the family-owned village press and the oil is packed locally. They prefer to sell the oil in bulk or refillable containers.
