We discovered the farm for sale in 2005 when on an Easter holiday in the Grampians. We’d been looking for a rural property that would suit our family with two young children since returning from working in South Africa for the previous five years. We thought perhaps a bed & breakfast might suit us – but ended up on a 300 acre olive grove instead!

One of our philosophies is to not irrigate. It’s a sustainability issue but we also feel that the intensity of the olive is stronger, undiluted and although the fruit may look a little wrinkled on the outside it preserves the flavour more. We fell in love with this beautiful part of world with its Mediterranean climate and wouldn’t change it for anything now.

The market provides great opportunities to talk with customers and meet people.
