Village Olive Grove
This beautiful olive grove of 830 Frantoio variety trees is tucked away in the folds of the Grindelwald hillsides with views over the Tamar River. Here, Allen and Barbara Baird harvest their olives while still green, for robustness and health benefits, and get them pressed straight away for freshness and flavour. The resulting taste sensation is a truly premium extra virgin olive oil which has won awards at both state and national competitions and was snapped up by 3-Michelin star French chef Alain Passard when he visited Tasmania in 2017.
Allen and Barbara are true olive oil enthusiasts. Meet them at the grove and discover ways of eating olive oil you’ve never previously dreamed of. Besides the usual, such as with pasta and salads, there’s Allen’s favourite – drizzled over vanilla ice cream with a sprinkling of sea salt! Try the oil for yourself at the grove where it’s grown, with locally baked artisan breads and homemade dukkah. There will also be demonstrations and self-guided walks through the pretty slopes of the grove, and of course the natural tranquillity and views of the Tamar estuary.
