Picking olives

The island of Ugljan is an “island of olives” with the tradition of 2000 years of olive growing. The ancient Romans built the “largest ancient oil mill on the Adriatic” on Ugljan in Muline village called “Villa Rustica”, where they produced over 80,000 liters of the famous Liburnian oil, especially valued in the Roman Empire.

 Since those ancient times, the “olive” has been and remains a sacred tree, the breadwinner and mother of the Mediterranean and our islanders. Extra virgin olive oil is the foundation of the healthiest Mediterranean diet and cuisine. We invite you to attend the “olive picking”, from 24/09 until the final harvest, as a traditional and special event of our islanders. Enjoy picking olives in the fresh air with a barbecue picnic, learn how to “taste” olive oil, and get to know the 2000 years old tradition and the charms of young olive oil”.
