The Olive Grove
350 olive trees have been planted
Following the heavy damage done to the former vineyard, an olive grove was established. To date, 350 olive trees have been planted, consisting of the following varieties:
Frantoio - 175 trees
Mission - 50 trees
Carotina - 125 trees
In 2016 we were able to pick our first crop of olives which were all pressed for olive oil, producing 130 litres of pure cold pressed extra virgin oil which is currently used in the guesthouse kitchen. The plan is to bottle oil for resale from future crops.
