Mount Zero Olives
Mount Zero Olives is a family-owned olive grove three hours west of Melbourne on the northern edge of the Grampians National Park in Victoria, Australia.
Planted in the 1940's, The Mount Zero Olive Grove is one of oldest olive groves in Australia.
A total of 6000 Spanish Manzanilla and Gordal Olive trees line the base of the Grampians most northern summit - Mount Zero. Here we practice biodynamic farming techniques and have the international Demeter certification. The grove is self-sustaining in its farming practices - feeding the trees directly from the soil humus rather than chemical inputs and our energy supply is sourced from off-grid wind and solar generators.
What we harvest is of huge importance to us but how we harvest is even more important. Ethical and sustainable harvest is a current buzzword in the world of food and produce but we've built a brand over the past 20 years based on respect to the environment, the people of our region and the customers that consume our goods.
Our Mount Zero olive grove is Demeter certified Bio-dynamic practicing a holistic and chemical free approach to growing. We endeavour to grow and source as much organic produce as possible as we strongly believe that less is more in the treatment of edible goods.
Commitment to flavour, sustainable farming and a passion for quality ingredients defines Mount Zero and all that we gather.
