The Olive Harvest in Greece

Olive trees and olive oil are featured in the first and last books of the Bible.


In the book of Genesis, in the story of Noah’s Ark and the great flood which covered the whole earth, olives are mentioned. After the forty days and nights of rain came to an end, Noah tried to find out whether the flood was abating. So “He sent forth the dove out of the ark; and the dove came in to him in the evening; and lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off; so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth” (Genesis, ch 8, verse 10-11).
