  • Grower and/or Producer
    We grow olive trees

    Our 1,250 trees were planted in 1999-2002. Varieties include Boutillon, Corregiola, Frantoio, Hardy's Mammoth, Kalamata, Koroneiki, Manzanilla, Mission, Tiny Kalamata, Verdale, and White. The trees are pruned to a vase shape, and kept low to the ground to facilitate hand picking.
    We produce olive oil

    The olives are picked as they ripen. We normally select 4-5 cultivars each year for varietal oils, and mix the other varieties. The olives are harvested onto nets, and immediately cold-pressed (below 28Degrees C) on site with a small centrifugal press. The oil given 48 hours to settle, then filtered through cottonwool. It is then stored in stainless steel tanks with airtight lids. To maximise freshness, the oil is bottled to meet demand.
