Mahurangi Olives is a commercial olive grove 60km north of Auckland encompassing 1100 mature olive trees through seven different varietals which include Frantoio, Ascolano, Leccino, Pendolino, Koroneiki, Picual and J5 and all contributing to create the award winning
At Mahurangi Olives we use everything that our trees give us including the leaves for tea and the discarded olive oil to create products for the body (soaps, lip balms and creams).
The olive grove is north-west facing, enjoying a lovely micro-climate of milder weather,
surrounded by wineries and gently rolling hills.
Harvest season at Mahurangi Olives is between the months of May and June
and pruning then follows through to the end of September.
Summer therefore is a wonderful time to relax and enjoy the gentle climate and peaceful olive grove.
