Woodlands Olive Grove

Local Produce Broke

Description

Description

Born from Greek passion and heritage, the origins of our family, and of olive oil production centuries ago, Woodlands has harnessed the natural energy of Australia to produce an olive oil with a fruity aromatic quality and a distinct wild peppery flavour.

Woodlands Olive Grove sits in the Broke Fordwich region of the Hunter Valley, where as the Wollombi Brook meanders through the Broke – Fordwich – Milbrodale – Bulga area it flows mainly through flat, well drained sandy country ideal for many sorts of agriculture.

Vineyards and olive groves have been established up and down the Valley and continue to thrive. Olives are believed to be native to the Middle East but have flourished all through the Mediterranean for millennia. They are a relatively new crop for Australia with very few trees more than 25 years old: a major planting boom in the mid 1990s saw the Hunter Valley establish its own olive industry.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Woodlands for your olive grove tour and olive tasting.

Among the very first groves to be established in the Hunter is Woodlands Olive Grove, home to 6,000 olive trees established with a mixture of varieties mainly originating in Spain and Italy for both eating (table) olives and for olive oil production.
