WHAT WE DO

Hand picked table olives & olive oil made with love.

Olifantskloof  Olive Farm is nestled between Riviersonderend & Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve, just north of the ever charming town of McGregor. The trees were planted in 1999 and through the labour and love of Roly and Felicity, the olive grove continues to have increasing yields. The rich soil of the Klein Karoo and natural spring waters combined with the hot summers and cold winters have proved to be ideal growing conditions for these olives to prosper.
The farm produces olive oil and table Olives.

Together with local workers we grow and harvest annually. Sometimes we even rope our friends in to pick the olives and share our wine.

Family owned farm.
