Oakhurst Olives (Oakhurst Kalamata Table Olives and Oakhurst Extra Virgin Olive Oil) was established on Lemoendrif Farm in the beautiful Tulbagh Valley in 2004. The Kalamata Olives are picked in March to April and are immediately put into brine. They stay in their barrels for a minimum of 10 months. The Oakhurst Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made of a blend of the fruits from 10 different varieties including Leccino, Frantoio and Carotina trees, which are all propagated and grown on the farm. The olives are picked and cold extracted on the same day. The picking season is from March through to June. The oil is produced on its First Pressing thereby ensuring you of a delicious fresh and peppery Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Olive Oil has a shelf life of approximately 2 years but the rule of thumb is, The Fresher the Better! Older oil loses its aroma and taste over time, as the oil gets older, it begins to smell and taste like cooking oil and the good and healthy properties of the Olive Oil is lost. We hand pick our entire crop, it is the only way you can ensure that only top quality fruit is used for processing.
