L'Uliveto Verde: The Green Olive Grove was established in 2007. Situated on 50 acres of prime undulating land on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia the grove is planted with over 3000 Frantoio and Leccino trees for on site oil production and 500 Kalamata trees for table olives.
The area is considered cold climate which results in high levels of polyphenols or antioxidents in the oil. Oil is made on site using newly installed state of the art Italian cold press plant from Pieralisi. The pickling tanks for table olives utilise Flextank plant which allows for brine return during processing.
We would also like to thank our farm manager, Ross, for his continued efforts at the grove to help us make the business a success.
