We Believe In Perfection

Our vision is to be a leader in the olive industry in South Africa and produce oils of outstanding quality and elegance

Olyfberg was selected as one of the top 10 oils in South Africa in 2018

Olives

Mission cultivar. Our olives are hand picked and sorted to ensure only the biggest, healthiest and fleshiest looking olives make it onto the shelves.

olive oil

Extra virgin, cold extracted. A blend of Mission, Frantoia (strong green overtones, peppery) and Leccino (soft, subtle, herbaceous, distinct taste of freshly cut grass) cultivars.

Tapenade

Made with our winning recipe of finely chopped olives, herbs, capers, garlic, lemon and black pepper. Seriously delicious!

The Story

Olyfberg, home of award-winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil, is situated on the banks of the Breede River on the outskirts of Robertson where hectares of olive groves sweep the countryside.

Handpicked olives are cold pressed in our production facility on the farm to preserve the delicate flavours and characteristics. Our table olives are generous in both size and flavour.

The first olive trees were planted in 1995.  Currently, the farm boasts 75 hectares of Frantoio, Leccino, Koratina, Manzanella and Kalamata olives.  The Karaan and Retief families jointly acquired the farm in 2016 with a shared vision to produce the highest quality olives and olive oil while uplifting their workforce and being true to nature. Olyfberg is proud to be a Level 2 BEE company.

Poems

Borobudur

Enlightened man has told his truth

In parentage enchanted youth

To find the path of constant strife

For all to master human life

Four corners of his teaching

For all of human reaching

Eight matters to fulfil

Endeavoured human will

The temple great in steps of ten

A kingdom of its glory then

The Buddha tale in circles told

A masterpiece for our behold

The sun does rise on glory days

On derelict and better ways

Forgotten nations searching dawn

The truth cannot be born

Bodrum

Endless rolling olive groves

On undulating hills aside

Deep blue the Aegean seaside

Where tourists flock in droves

White homes stacked from hill to sea

Band architraves in bordered blue

Descending masses motored queue

From stressful city life they flee

This quiet restful mountain slide

That fall to ocean blue and bright

To rhythmic ripples sparkled sight

As ocean heaves with tide

Melancholy its air and haze

Along the mountain cruise

The flowy drive to waters guise

Such beauty cannot but amaze

Grey pebbled beach along the shore

That crunch with waters lash

Each sinking step in stony mash

Such sound and sight adore

One minaret of mosque in stone

That guards since early days

From spirited to worldly ways

Long there yet stands alone

East of Me

As rowdy nights to laughter break

And people reach their silly shame

To then subside to bedded frame

Until the morning break

My Land, My Land

Suid-Afrika my land, my land

Hoe kan ek jou verlaat?

Verlede diep in leed en smaad

My trane in jou sand

O sonskynland aan onderpunt

Van grote vasteland

Waar vele nasies saam beland

Hul toekoms so verbind

Land van veel en variasies

In grond, see en klimaat

Sy berge en woestyngewaad

Skakerings en dimensies

Sy gronde ryk van goud en klip

Minerale en edelmetale

Gesteentes smee in krale

Mensvergryp ons glip

Verstote en verdrukking

Van mens en grondgebied

Onweerswolke te bespied

Tydig in ons skikking

Twee oseane wat omhels

Warmkoud, sout en soet

By Goedehoop hul groet

Die see ons land se pels

Is daar ooit sonsak so mooi

Oranjeson oor Vrystaatland

Wit en geelmielies in stand

Namakwaland in blom getooi

Oranje, Vaal en Sandrivier

Ons landsgebied begrens

Voed plante dier en mens

Elk trop en siel van mier

Aardse geur wat elke keer

Met reёn se plas ontwaak

Grondgeure bind tot smaak

In vrug se soetheid smeer

Die drom en dans van stamme

Mooi sang van Afrikakoor

Wat elke luisteraar betoor

Reel ritme uit sy tromme

My mooie land, bly tog by my

Jy kan my nooit verlaat

Dat elke daad teen mensverraad

My red om hier te bly

Adel tot edel

Van alles is ons eens gestroop

Het wat oorbly net in hoop

Van land ons bates en ons grond

Wat oorbly is geloofgebond

Diere veel en wakker, wild

Van bok, reptiel en elke veer

Vis te veel van vele kleur

‘n Kop vir elke skild

Winters in die Noorde droog

Met ryp so wit daar buite

Natter winters in die suide

Met sikluswaters loog

Somersdae staan stil in die son

Elk blaar bruis tot verwelk

Druif tot wyn in fyne kelk

Die son ons lewensbron

Mense veel van kleur en geur

Afrika, Weste, Ooste

Tesame hier ‘n tuiste

So meng ‘n nasie deur

Van samesyn kan ons hul leer

Uit oorlogsdae tot vrede

Menslikheid ons strewe

Van rasegtheid bekeer

Ons speel elk spel met oorgawe

Finesse tot grof geweld

Tenvolle elke gawe geld

Pak take met bravade
