1996 with the planting of about 300 trees, Greg and Clare Gibson’s oil estate
(Gibson’s Grove) now boasts over 2000 trees producing around 50 tonnes of oil
and 12 tonnes of table olives a year. The harvest generally takes place around
June each year, guided by the condition and ripeness of the olives at the time;
no short cuts are taken to speed up the process. The method of harvest depends
on the end use of the olives – table olives are hand-picked, while olives for
pressing (olive oil) are mechanically shaken from trees.
Grove Olives are naturally pickled in brine for nine months before being
packaged with brine, a little vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, fresh rosemary
and garlic. The mixed olive jar is a mixture of whole olives; Manzanilla,
Ligurian and Kalamata varieties make up the mix.
