Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Hazelnuts and more....
Welcome from Margot and Richard.
Situated near Greytown in the Wairarapa (about a 75km drive north of Wellington), New Zealand, we run a small grove established in 2000 growing hazelnuts, olives and table grapes, plus a little horseradish.
We welcome visitors and would love to see you!
We've made it through another picking! It has been a difficult season, with a lack of sunshine hours in what was supposed to be summer putting us weeks behind normal, and, it would seem, leading to the completely uneconomic yields from the presses. Then throw in lots of frosts to keep us guessing...
But friends and acquaintances pitched in with another valiant effort, and the picking weather was better than forecast. We made it, thank you all our helpers.
Our olives are cold-pressed in the Wairarapa. We produce very high quality extra virgin olive oils. We usually keep the varietals separate for pressing, so we can produce Frantoio, Leccino, Barnea and Picual extra virgin olive oils and beautiful blends and infusions.

Our main hazelnuts include Barcelona and Tondo Romano table varieties, and a younger planting of Tonda di Giffoni and Whitehart.
We have a small area dedicated to old-fashioned table grapes. No, they are not pip free - but they taste great, the way grapes used to!
Finding we have more horseradish than we can consume, we make our excess available for those that know the delights of real horseradish sauce.
