October is olive harvesting time—a tradition that dates back here to the times of Roman Empire. The methods and means haven't changed much since then. If you want to become a Croatian farmer for just a day, wake up before dawn and go off to the fields. No matter if you hand pick olives or shake them down from the tree, there is certain magic in that whole process.
