GOLDEN CREEK OLIVES - OLIVE GROWERS AND OIL MAKERS

Established in 1999, we are an olive grove and olive oil making facility at Fish Creek, South Gippsland. We specialize in producing the highest quality varietal Extra Virgin Olive Oils from our estate-grown olives. As we receive an abundant annual rainfall in our Southern Gippsland region, our trees are not irrigated, allowing the olive fruit to gain the best possible oil quality and flavour characteristics. Our trees are naturally grown in our groves without the use of herbicides or harmful pesticides.

We planted and manage the trees, pick and process the fruit and store and bottle the oil on-site with attention to sustainability and quality management. We chip the pruned olive tree branches and the mulch is used under the younger olive trees, on the vegetable garden and in the fruit and nut tree orchard. We transport the pomace waste to a dairy farm where it's fed to the cows on the revolving milking platform. We focus on recycling to make the best use of resources and minimise waste.

We have planted seven varieties of oil-producing olive trees, spread over three groves:

We net all the trees to minimise loss of fruit to birds and the fruit is hand picked from mid-May through to mid-July and is cold-processed on-site within 24 hours of picking.

This year, we offer Five varietal estate-grown extra virgin olive oils, each with a free fatty acid level less than .3%, these are: Frantoio, Leccino, Coratina, Koroneiki, and a blend of Arbequina & Picual (Spain). The five oils each have their own aroma and flavour characteristics in fruit, bitterness and pepperiness and present clean palate-fresh flavors representing the best qualities of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

We also process olives for olive growers in the surrounding regions, using our state-of-the art machinery in a pristine facility. Deliveries are scheduled to ensure no delays in processing occur when the fruit is delivered and strict batch control and traceability, along with hygiene management of the fruit, equipment and containers is followed.

Our operation and extra virgin olive oils have achieved Code of Practice Accreditation in the Australian olive industry; developed to provide consumers with confidence that signatories to this Code have undergone rigorous procedures to certify that their grove management, processing and products meet the highest industry standards.
