About Olive’s Olives

Olive’s Olives was established in 2008 and is a family run, 300-tree grove in the heart of the Macedon Ranges just north of Kyneton in Victoria. In 2017 we also took over the management of a 20 year old 150 tree olive grove in the same area.

Our grove is in a rich volcanic plain and the region’s Mediterranean cold winters and hot summers provide an ideal olive growing environment. We are on a wonderful journey of continuous education about this remarkable tree and the olives it bears.

With no agricultural experience at all, but lots of passion, we have gradually learned how to nurture and tend these magnificent trees. From where we started in 2008 we are now much more knowledgeable about them and have mastered some of the natural pickling methods of table olive production. We will always be learning.

Our grove has several varietals of table olive trees including Volos, Nab Tamri, Kalamata, Manzanillo, Picual, Azapa, Barouni, Hojiblanco, Coratina and Californian Queen.

Our young trees produced 200kgs of fruit in 2017, double the previous year. In contrast the other grove, with 150, 20 year old Manzanillo trees, produced 3.6tonnes! Tree maturity is clearly one of the critical factors in harvest quantities.

We are proud to sell our produce directly to the local community, provedores, restaurants and vineyard cellar doors in the Macedon Ranges.
