Homeleigh Grove Olives is situated on the ACT/NSW border close to the Barton Highway at Hall, within sight of Black Mountain Tower.
Planting commenced with about 125 trees in 1999 and has continued with some new plantings each year. The Grove now comprises about 2,000 trees.
The Grove has been the site for several demonstrations, including the Australian Olive Expo’s “Farm Walk” for several years when 200 growers came to see demonstrations of the latest harvesting and grove management equipment.
Even with such a young grove, the annual harvest has already reached up to 30 tons, of which over a tonne is picked for table olives.
The Grove has produced many great oils and table olives of medal winning quality, the oils consistently achieving medals and trophies every year.
