Our first Mission olive trees were planted in the early 1950's and over the years we've added trees whenever new vineyards were planted.
Today we have approximately 7 hectares of olive orchards in addition to the original Mission trees. Mostly Italian cultivars have been planted in the ratio in which the oil will be blended. Frantoio (50%) typically Tuscan, fruity and herbaceous, Leccino (30%) mild, sweet with subtle herbaceous flavours and Coratina (20%) green and somewhat bitter.
We harvest our olives by hand at optimum ripeness and while most of our olives are sold to commercial companies, a small quantity is cold-pressed and bottled. Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil of exceptional quality is completely natural containing no preservatives.
Olywe is al vir baie jare deel van ons Bolandse kultuur, en daarom verseker ons dat die natuurlike ekstra suiwer, koud geparste olyfolie wat ons vrystel van dieselfde hoŽ standaard is as ons ander produkte. Die olyfolie is beskikbaar op die plaas en kan ook by ons bestel word.
A pricelist of our current olive oils are available on request. It can be ordered through our website or directly from the farm.
