Maybe the new 'fashion' for olive trees isn't just a passing fad, after all!

&gt; Some where a southern EU olive farmer gets a subsidy for getting rid

One of the garden designers at Hampton Court had used some gorgeous old
olive trees for which he already had customers before he imported them.
Those came from Spain where a brisk trade has developed in shipping abroad
olive trees that are 'in the way' of the big housing developments going on
there. I own a plot of land in Crete with about 12 olive trees on it. I
wonder what it would cost to dig 'em up and ship them to Devon! ;-)

olive farm in the Otter Valley because he reckons that with global

I think he looks like a &quot;would be farmer&quot; Hobby farming springs to mind.
Having belittled his efforts I do admit that we have a local farmer with
Ostrich and Lamas and he is making a go of it.
The Italians don't do very good clotted cream-so give the olives a miss:-)

A few years back, I visited a fruit and nut (and olive) farm in
Northern California. At the end of their productive life, the farmer
would sell the olive trees - beautiful large 20 + year old multistemmed
specimens - to the landscaping industry. They were uprooted, loaded up
onto low-loaders, and shipped out. At the time (2001), he was getting
around $700 to 800 per tree - God only knows what the landscape
gardeners or other retail customers were paying for them.

A few more folk have latched onto the lucrative idea of olive trees so the
price has only risen a little in the last few years. Local GC has mature
things in 250L pots at £800.
Horrible gnarled things with a few leaves and the occasional olive.
I suppose they might look nice in a Japanese type theme but I think one
could get a better effect with an old knackered tree trunk.

&gt;&gt;&gt;I think he looks like a &quot;would be farmer&quot; Hobby farming springs to mind.
&gt;&gt;&gt;Having belittled his efforts I do admit that we have a local farmer with
&gt;&gt;&gt;Ostrich and Lamas and he is making a go of it. The Italians don't do very
&gt;&gt;&gt;good clotted cream-so give the olives a miss:-)
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; What, with both? There's ostriches jut down the road from us and llamas
&gt;&gt; on the Chevin, but you've got another one your way have you?

&gt; Thought Chevin man did/does ostriches, Some scandal with ostrich
&gt; investment.?
&gt; Let's revive the textile industry in your area and start rearing Alpaca

Ashdown Forest Llamas
You can take them for a walk too
