Extra Virgin Oil: new harvest

Out of "the good stuff"? Can you hang in there till March? That's when we are expecting the 2007 harvest to be delivered and we can't wait, either. Our source has gone organic, so the price has risen a bit: $150 for 5 liters + $15 shipping.

Email Elaine to reserve your supply:

Andy is "working" in Italy this week

Hampstar is currently in the old country, checking on some tours and the Extra Virgin Oil Company pipeline, and most importantly, watching Gerado's big race in Donoratico. Now that's a sight I would like to see.

(If you haven't met Gerardo yet, he is our support van driver, mechanic, bike rental tzar, comic relief, and a born communicator. You don't need Italian to get his jokes).
