Morocco – Goats in trees and Argan oil

Once upon a time these nimble goats climbed up argan trees to eat the fruit. The people collected the nuts the goats left littered underneath and ground them up to extract the oil.

Nowadays they put the goats up in the trees for the tourists and use an industrial method to extract the oil from the nuts.

But it is a weird sight!! You don’t often see goats up in trees!

Here’s some women extracting oil from argan nuts in the traditional way for the tourists.
