Organic, Unirrigated, Locally Grown
Marraweeny Olives is a small organic olive grove of about 1,000 trees, grown, picked and pruned by Dijana Cane and family.
Situated high in the picturesque Strathbogie Ranges, our olive trees benefit from a cool climate. We grow several olive varieties; Frantoio and Picual trees produce a well-balanced oil with a touch of pepper; while Manzanillo, Kalamata and Frantoio trees produce table olives with an excellent texture and fully developed flavour.
We have deliberately chosen to remain a small operation focussing on high quality, environmentally friendly production. As a result, all our fruit, for both table olives and oil, are hand-picked and each tree is individually pruned to ensure the best possible product. Marraweeny Olives is a NASAA Certified Organic business. In addition our grove is unirrigated, rain water naturally and allowing our olives to develop a fuller flavour.
After picking, our oil is processed by a NASAA certified processor, while our table olives are prepared on site in brine without any unnecessary additives.
