Olive Oil Farm Direct 1L
OUT OF SEASON / SOLD OUT
The olives are handpicked in June each year from trees planted in 2008 at
Laterite Ridge, only natural fertilizers are used and no chemical herbicide
or pesticides sprays are used. Sheep, cattle and chickens are used to
control weeds and fertilize the trees.
After an initial establishment period the olives are no longer irrigated which produces a smaller but better quality of oil. After picking the olives are transported only 40 km to the local York Olive Oil mill where the olives are crushed and oil produced.
There are 2800 trees in the groves including Hardy's Mammoth,
Manzanillo, Kalamata, Arbequina, Frantoio, Leccino and Barnea. The oil has
a mild flavour which compliments food rather than being overpowering.
