The Olive Grove

We currently grow 1600 trees in our 5 hectare grove.  There are 5 main varieties: 

Boutillan, Black Italian, LeCurre, Nevadillo (Picual) and Manzanillo.

The olives are currently grown using organic farming principles. There have been no artificial fertilisers or chemicals applied to this grove in the last five years.

The olives are hand harvested using mechanical rakes. Currently a crew of four take about 5 weeks to harvest the entire grove.

The olives are then cold pressed into Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Ashbolt Farm in New Norfolk, as soon as possible once harvested.
