South African olives are renowned for their remarkable quality and taste, and Oudewerfskoof olives are no exception. The distinctive organoleptic characteristics which makes our extra virgin olive oil so unique, is a result of the care that went into growing, harvesting, and extracting the oil, the storing conditions, age of the oil, the maturity of the olives at harvest time, the variety of olives and the ideal location of our orchard.
Oudewerfskloof Olive Farm is perfectly located on the banks of the Goukou River estuary where the soil is particularly fertile and coastal climate, with its warm days, cool nights and low humidity ideally suited to producing award-winning olives.

This means that our oil is 100% South African.
