- ABOUT US -
Some years ago while Greg was travelling in Italy, he spent some time in the city of Bologna. It was there while passing an old hardware shop; he saw a charming wine-cask tap. Greg thought this would make an ideal gift for his uncle who was in the wine business. Talking to the old lady behind the counter of the hardware shop the conversation got around to sausage making. One thing led to another and Greg found himself carrying a rather weighty, old hand-operated sausage-filler around Bologna.
Fast forward to just over a year ago when Greg and his partner, Kath, saw an opportunity to purchase a property with a commercial factory in the 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.
