Within our 12 acres we have a grove of 200 olive trees.
The varietals we grow include koroneki, verdale, frantoia and J5 olives. We harvest the olives each May and they are pressed at Rangihoua Estate which is only a couple of kilometres away.
Our Koroneiki blend has three times won a gold medal and Best in Show boutique olive oil at the national olive oil awards. In May 2020 the oil was awarded a Gold Medal in the New York International Olive Oil Competition. This is the world’s largest and most prestigious olive oil contest and its annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the world’s best extra virgin olive oils.
You are most welcome to ask for a taste of our oil. It is for sale.
You can read about the olive oil judging process here on the oliveoiltimes.com article.
We are also featured in this article about New Zealand Olive Oil producers and the awards they have won.
