Over the Easter weekend I went to a farm called Hopeful, located 2.5 hours drive from Canberra. 15,000 olive trees grow there and Easter always marks the start of the harvest period. Table olives are hand picked, and olives for olive oil are machine picked. The produce is packaged and sold under the name Alto Olives (alto means ‘high’ in Italian).
Quality olive oil, grown and made in Australia. Yum!
