Our olives are harvested by hand from April to June, pressed within 24 hours and blended to our Bakenshoogte olive oil known for its fresh green grassy smell and aromatic peppery taste.
Bakenshoogte olive oil is classified as an extra virgin olive oil according to all set standards, i.e.
* Free Fatty acid <= 0.8 (Bakenshoogte oil is 0.16)
* Peroxide value <= 20 (Bakenshoogte oil is 6.5)
Our oil was rewarded a double gold at the SA Olive Awards in 2011. We received another gold medal for our oil in the intense category at the SA Olive Awards in 2012. In 2013 we again received a gold medal, and was nominated for the ABSA Top 5 olive oils in the country!
The oil is bottled on our premises in 375ml elegant glass bottles, 1 Liter, and 5 Liter tin cans. Oil can also be purchased by filling your own container on the farm.
