OUR OLIVE GROVE
Mornington Peninsula Olive Grove
Our olive grove consists of over 1300 trees. We planted the classic Tuscan varieties, Frantoio, Pendolino and Leccino (the Mornington Peninsula is a similar latitude to Tuscany). These trees make wonderful high polyphenol extra virgin olive oils and have won multiple awards.
We also have 100 Piccholine trees for larger table fruit.Harts Farm 2015 Leccino Pendolino Blend won Silver Medal at Australian Olive Association competition in Robust section. Harts Farm 2016 Frantoio Leccino Pendolino Blend wins Bronze at Australian Olive Association competition in Robust section.
Hart’s Farm Olive Oil
During the harvest season you have the opportunity of purchasing just pressed ultra fresh oil, which is not available from shops. Purchase Hart’s Farm extra virgin olive oil in 500ml, 1 Litre, 4 Litre or 20 litre sizes. Makes a perfect gift. Take to a dinner party instead of chocolates, or wine. No one else will have the same oil.
