DUCK CREEK OLIVE OIL
Our grove from where Duck Creek Extra Virgin Olive Oil is harvested is located close to the Mahurangi Harbour and 6km from the heart of Matakana. Travelling down a quiet country road, you will find the grove, which is nestled in a beautiful natural valley surrounded by New Zealand native trees and the gentle mist from the clear waters of Duck Creek.
Privately owned, managed and personally harvested by Derek and Sally Holland this grove has over a decade of growth, offering a cross selection of Leccino, Frantoio, Koroneiki, Albany Gold, (J5) Chemali and Pendolino olive trees.
Planted to offer the best results for wind pollination these varietals work together to create an award winning extra virgin olive oil, which is marvelous for the palate and good for the soul.
