There is no truth to the notion that Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from very ugly olives!! Extra Virgin describes Olive Oil which in Australia conforms to very specific standards. The Olives are picked at critical stages of ripeness, processed as soon as possible after harvest and must have free fatty acid levels below 1%. True Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a natural food which has legendary health attributes.
Because we have varietal Extra Virgin Olive Oils, you are able to taste differences and choose an oil that suits your tastes and needs.
Table Olives are picked by hand to avoid bruising and to discard damaged fruit. We cure the olives in a brine for several months to soften their natural bitterness. When ready we hand grade them again before putting them into jars. The variation in colours are natural, as are the flavours and texture of each variety.
We also have an oil pressing facility to support the local growers.John and Laurel Nowacki Layback Manor Hopetoun Road Rutherglen 3685 PO Box 96. Rutherglen Vic 3685 mob. 0438 404 512 ph. 02 60 327022 fax. 02 60 327022 Email firstname.lastname@example.org
