What makes our olive oil so exceptional?

The purity of the oil produced by Cradle Coast Olives stems from the fact that our 400 olive trees thrive in the rich red volcanic soil, in the pristine environment of northern Tasmania. Our property is situated in a valley micro-climate, ideally suited to low yield but highest quality olive oil production.

From the first plantings, 15 years ago, to the careful tree pruning, drip feed irrigation, hand-harvesting and same-day cold-pressing, we have committed ourselves to following world’s best practice in all aspects of extra virgin olive oil production.
