Oil-producing workshops, from antiquity to the present are based on the three main steps to turn olives into olive oil.
The crushing of the fruit, the extraction of the oil from the olive paste and the separation of liquidoil from the vegetation water and solid matter. The parts of an oil-mill were the animal powered mill and the wooden press.
The mill that still exists in Olive Street used to have one up to three millstones, which were working in a flat basin. Man and tranction animals were providing the power necessary to move the millstones in order to crush the olives.
