About Us and Production
Ahmet Uysal Yağhanesi was founded by Ahmet Uysal Çakaloğlu in the village of Aydın / Germencik / Hıdırbeyli on 29 October 1927. The bonds of our family have never been separated from olive oil for nearly a century and have survived until today. As an ancestral heritage, we continue to present our products to the world tables.
The product processing at this historic facility continues briefly as follows.
Our oilhouse consists of sections;
-Entrance / courtyard, crop and delivery
-Crushing olives / obtaining olive paste
-Bagging and pressing the olive paste to put in the inner section / press
In the ancient way; The olive paste obtained by crushing with rotary cylindrical stones is taken to the dough waiting section in the pressing section. Stone cylinders rotating by animal power are ancient ways. The olive paste obtained is placed in bristle bags in the inner section. Bristle bags stacked on top of each other are placed in presses and squeezed by "dwarf", that is, human power, to separate the olive from the dough. In the meantime, the bags are taken down from the press twice and water at 40-50 degrees is given. The leaked oil flows from there to the waiting pulums and rests there.
The work at the facility was later transformed into a crane method and is carried out by a team of 4 people. The water requirement of the facility is supplied from two water wells in the courtyard. Later, 4 cylinders of stone were motorized. Our simultaneous use of human and animal power is based on efficiency.
The oilhouse was illuminated by large candles and glass gas lamps previously hung from the ceiling; With the arrival of the moving carbide to Turkey, it has been used carbide lamps. Later, sailor lanterns were used. Our oilhouse, renewed with the loyalty we feel to our roots, continues its activities using the latest technologies; continues to keep alive the ancestral heritage.
