Tales of Tasmanian Adventures in Olive Oil

FREE – Pick your own olives

Leave a comment

Would you like to cure your own olives? Come to the beautiful Tasmanian Coal River Valley and pick your own olives to take home. We’re open for picking from today until Saturday 5th July, 2014.

Our Manzanillos are planted every eighth tree throughout the grove as pollinators for the Picual. Manzanillos can be pressed for oil, but they’re traditionally a table olive and their higher moisture content makes oil extraction more difficult, so we’re not picking them ourselves this year.

Contact us using the contact form for more details and directions, and to make sure we’re here before you visit. FFx

I'm a British doctor who married an Aussie, moved to Tasmania, and bought an olive grove. Now making extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf tea. I'd love you to join my adventures in the beautiful setting of Southern Tasmania.

I'd love to know what you think! Tell me here :-)
