Prince Albert Olives

Fruit is grown and harvested in orchards in Prince Albert and outside the town near the Gamka river. The region is known for its clean and healthy air with ample sunlight and very cold winters.

O for Olive

We harvest between 50 and 80 tons of olives a year. These are hand-picked and processed on site, along with our extra virgin olive oil, which is cold pressed and bottled on the property. Our friendly staff members will happily take you on a guided tour to show you the whole process.
