OLIVE OIL STORY

A LABOUR OF LOVE

THE KAKARIKI
OLIVES STORY

When a time for a change in lifestyle was needed, Ray and Brenda didn’t believe that running an Olive Grove would be in their future plans. But this is exactly what happened, purchasing Kakariki Olives from its previous owners of 20 years. Moving forward, the Gregory family work hard to produce exceptional fruit, the result being a premium, award-winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They are custodians of over 3,200 trees that thrive in the clay soils and the famous warm and sunny climate that the Nelson/Tasman region is so famous for. Kakariki Olives now supply delicious Extra Virgin Olive Oil to restaurants, cafes, retailers, and private customers all over the country. To find out where see our stockists page or buy online.

KAKARIKI OLIVES

A Family Business

Ray and Brenda work closely with family and seasonal contractors to prune and harvest the fruit. The olives are pressed using an on-site olive press, allowing full control over the production process – from farm to plate. With a passion for crafting pure New Zealand Olive Oil, Kakariki Olives are specialists in the Tuscan Frantoio and Leccino varietals. The olives are carefully harvested, and within 24hrs are pressed, and blended to produce premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil for your enjoyment. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is great for everyday cooking, as a dip for fresh bread, drizzled over vegetables, pasta, and salads. Our citrus infusions are perfect for cooking seafood.
