This Rubén, every year at this time he comes to collect our Olives. This machine is used for collecting the Olives that have fallen to the ground. If you look at the photos you can see the spikes which when rolled picks up the Olives and deposits them into the basket. This machine has been passed down though his family for many years, Rubén doesn't know how old this machine is. Apparently they still make these machines, so they must be very efficient. After Rubén picks the Olives he then takes them to an Olive mill, to be made into Olive oil, depending on how many Kilos he collects we get a percentage of the oil.
Later he will return to to pick the rest of the Olives from the trees.
Many thanks for looking
