Gibson’s Grove Olives
Gibson's Grove Olives is Forbes' own award-winning olive grove, having won several awards over the years at the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show for their olives and oils. Their Table Olives are Manzanillo or Ligurian Style (Paragon), or a mixed jar using both of these plus Correggiola and the more commonly known Kalamata olives – both of which have a sweeter taste. The cold-pressed, extra virgin olive oils are produced from the Paragon, Manzanillo and Correggiola varieties. They are open for visits by appointment only – particularly during harvest season. Limited products are available locally at Bernardi’s Marketplace and Flint Street Butchery. Orders are also welcome.
