Our Family Farm River Flats Estate is our family owned olive grove nestled between the yellow cliffs of the Brokenback Range and the Wollombi Brook at Broke. Our family have been enjoying this property with friends and family for over 40 years. My daughter and I still live on the property and are proud producers of olives, olive oils, seasonal chutneys and relishes, vinegars and soys, jams, local honey, soaps and beauty products and of course our farm stay accommodation. All products are handmade and available through our shop and at a range of local markets or here online.
Our olive grove has 3000 trees and is comprised of a number of different, mainly Tuscan, varieties, chosen for their suitability for either oil or table olive production. They were planted 25 years ago and were among the first for the hunter valley.
