Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Greg and his partner, Kath, saw an opportunity in 2006 to purchase a property with a commercial factory in the beautiful countryside at Hoteo North near Wellsford.This factory included an olives and processing plant. The property was perfect – not only did Greg have a kitchen and storage for his beloved sausages; he now had the opportunity to press the olives from the trees on his newly acquired Hoteo Nth property. It seemed natural to Greg and Kath that they should set up a sideline processing olives for oil, in addition to their gourmet meat products business. This is just one of the many stories of how the allure of the golden oil finds its way into the lives of those who otherwise have passed up such an opportunity.
