The Parafield Grove has always been farmed using Organic Principals, we leave the Olives to ripen naturally on the trees. We start picking our Green Olives on 1st April every year. Our Olives are picked by hand & then put into a salt brine for 15 months. Olives are bitter straight from the tree. This is a Phenolic know as ‘Oleauropein’ and has to be removed to be edible. Almost All Table Olives in the World and in your supermarket are put into a Caustic solution to rapidly remove this bitterness which only takes only 5 days.

At Parafield we use the ‘Natural Method’ of Salt Brine which takes 15 months thereby keeping All of the Flavours & the Natural Health Benefits Olives have to Offer.
