Old French Road Olive Grove situated in Takamatua near Akaroa on Banks Peninsula is a stunning place to grow olives.  It is a boutique grove of about 1200 trees with Tuscan, Spanish and Greek Olives.  This gives us a wide variety of differing flavours

Each year the Grove consistently produces award winning Olive Oil. We  are late to harvest usually mid June to end of July and the oil produced is often quite intense flavoured although this depends on time of harvest the variety and weather.   Frantoia tends to be the mildest.  The intensity of the flavours comes from the high amount of organoleptics in the oil which provides the health giving properties.
