Hello and welcome to my shop which features our artisan olive oil and handmade gardening gifts. The olive oil is grown in our small 70 tree grove on our 10 acre property in Crossman located 160km south of Perth in Western Australia. Almost 30 years old, our grove has always been managed using regenerative agriculture practices founded on Permaculture principles.
The grove has never had any chemical fertiliser or pesticides used and we do not net our trees from birds. Our grove is a haven our local small bird and lizard wildlife that seek shelter from birds of prey. They take their share but fallen eaten fruit, along with droppings is like a natural compost for the trees. We ensure our soil between the rows is never disturbed or barren and even use our horses in our grove setting up hay stations and allowing them to graze between rows managing natural grasses, provide nutrient rich manure and leaving their remnant hay as mulch.
Because we maintain good vegetation cover over our soil, rain is easily absorbed when it falls meaning trees haven t required reticulation for the last decade. Vehicle traffic through the grove is also limited to avoid compacting our soil and damaging fragile surface roots. We restrict tractor use in the grove to slashing spring grasses for ground mulch or to assist during harvest. Picking our olives and pruning is done gently by hand as a shared family activity and takes around 10 days work each year.
