Last December, Monsignor John Kozar visited olive processing mill in Kobayat, Lebanon during his pastoral visit to the Middle East. You can read about his visit to this mill and other sites in Lebanon in his blog post:
Our first stop…was the olive processing mill that was running at full tilt, even though the olive season has just about ended. We were warmly greeted by the president of the cooperative association that oversees the pooled efforts of hundreds of farmers as well as by friends and coworkers.
As the machinery hummed along, our hosts took us on a simple tour. They demonstrated how bags of olives brought in from outlying farms were sent through a series of machines and ended up a high quality olive oil. Needless to say, we had to each try a sample of the work.
