“When Patrice Newell left a highly charged urban life to live in the country, friends warned her she’d be bored in no time.  Fifteen years later, she’s doing more in a day than most of us do in a week.  And Elmswood is no ordinary property, it’s a biodynamic farm with beef cattle and olives.
Th Olive Grove is a celebration of rural life, from the disastrous to the comic.  It also has an eye on the bigger issues: localism versus globalism; natural farming versus the use of chemicals; the need for sustainability.  And in a nation where the city dwellers own shares in huge, anonymous agricorporations, there are welcome reminders of the value of personal involvement.  Not to mention the odd cooking tip.”
