The olives are all picked by hand from each tree. Comb-like tools, some with long extensions for the higher branches are used for this process and the falling olives are captured in nets spread under the trees. As olives ripen, they begin to drop from the trees. In some areas, nets are spread beneath the trees and the olives harvested as they accumulate in the nets. The olives that make Argoladi go from the tree to the olive press in a matter of hours, ensuring its freshness.
