The Pienaar family has always been passionate about farming. Their dream realised several years ago when they established a 17 hectare olive grove at Het Bos, their farm on the outskirts of Darling on the Cape West Coast.
This region has a maritime Mediterranean climate which is ideally suited for olive growing; they chose to plant the well-known Frantoio Cultivar. The slight spicy and peppery character of this oil suits most palates. The high anti-oxidant count makes it one of the healthiest olive oils.
The ‘little’ grove at Het Bos is big enough to make a meaningful quantity, yet small enough for them to hand craft and create a superb product and present it with pride & joy.
