Marco Oreggia 2007. L’Extravergine A guide to the worlds best Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oils
Located close to Forest Hill, Mount Barker Western Australia, Forest Edge Farm is a small yet highly regarded olive grower. We planted our first olives in 2000 with 1500 Frantoio, a renowned Tuscan variety, with a further 200 in 2005. We are a small family owned grove, and run our farm on sustainable principles. No chemicals are used on our trees. Our farm is powered by a new solar system installed in Sept 06. Family and friends gather each harvest time (approx June /July) to hand harvest our trees using pneumatic rakes and nets to catch the falling olives. We then transport our fruit to a contract processor, to be pressed within 24hrs of harvest. We hand bottle and label ourselves. In 2007 year we completed our bottling/storage room and purchased the first (of many) stainless steel tanks for oil storage. Since our first commercial crop in 2005 produced a Gold Medal winning oil, Forest Edge Farm has continued to produce the finest oil. We are a small producer by world standards, but our commitment to quality & sustainability ensures that you are enjoying a premium olive oil that is not only good for you, but also for the environment.
