RED ROCK OLIVES

By Ramya Sundrapandi

We were thrilled when Red Rock Olives decided to join the Bayside Farm Box family as this Victorian Olive Grove is the hotbed of a small but growing suite of artisan products which Australia needs to know about. 

Situated near the magical Grampians National Park in Western Australia, the Red Rock Olive Grove is a18-hectare olive grove hosts more than 5,000 multi award winning trees. The grove has various types of olives including Manzanillo, Frantoio, Kalamata and Liguaria.

Next week, Bayside farm Box customers will get a taste of their beautiful Kalamata olives, described as a black Greek style olive with firm flesh and rich, fruity wine flavours. 

Rita Bilkins and David Margetson are the humans behind the Red Rock Olive brand. Rita is a city girl who worked in PR and David is a sheep farmer. Together they have a vision to educate Australians about the delights of 'real' olive oil and the importance of consuming good quality olive oil. They are well on their way to achieving this vision with their extra virgin olive oil winning awards in 2014 and 2015. More info can be found at www.redrockolives.com.au

We are honoured and excited that these guys have joined the Bayside farm Box family and cannot wait to introduce the fruits of the loving labour of Rita, David and the Red Rock Olives team to the Melbourne Bayside Community!
