We are a small local producer of an extra virgin olive oil that we think is one of the Bellarine Peninsula’s best-kept secrets.

Our focus is on small volume production of superior extra virgin olive oil, using sustainable growing approaches that ensure excellent quality whilst protecting our environment. For example, we use biological pest control methods, such as introducing ladybirds to the grove.

What differentiates us from most other growers is that our trees are dry-grown. That means that we do not irrigate, so the trees survive on whatever natural rainfall there is. This usually means the trees yield less fruit, but we believe that is more than compensated for by the concentration of flavour and improved quality.

You can also be assured of the quality, because we have qualified for The Australian Olive Association’s Code of Practice certification. In addition, our oil has won various medals at the Australian National Extra Virgin Olive Oil shows.

This olive oil, bread, wine and you, beneath a tree,

And wilderness, a paradise would be!
