Olive Grove

The Eastwell Estate Olive grove covers 15 acres of our farm with 4 varieties of Olive trees. The varieties are Pendolino, Lecino, Frantoio and Mission and were planted – 400 in 1998, 400 in 1999, 400 in 2000 and 200 in 2001.

Olives were sold to local oil producers until 2008 when we got friends together to pick and made our first Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a magnificent blend of the four varieties with the majority of the blend being Frantoio. Due to the success of the 2008 production run, we have again retained our olives and produced a 2009 Extra Virgin Olive Oil that is available now in either 500mL bottles or a 4L tin.

The Great Southern growing region produces many top quality Extra Virgin Olive Oils, and we believe ours is up there with them. We have yet to submit our oil for show judging, though perhaps in 2010 we’ll get round to it. For now its available in the online shop.. why not make it part of your next mixed case!
