Just thought to add my 2 cents worth to the olive oil debate..

Someone very close to me (who really new his stuff about agriculture)
was given the job of looking into the olive oil industry as part
of a business venture. Bearing in mind that this was done three
or four years ago,he investigated the projects throughly over
a few months, visited the farms, talked to lots of experts ect
after doing the math it was found that it is still cheaper to
import the stuff!
(A stockbroker remarked that in his opinion the olive oil thing
may be the next ostrich farm situation,)
The companies running these farms also charge very high management
fees as well,
Unless the situation is very different now, I think I would
be cautious.
