Open your heart to Olives!

Portion 36 Olive Orchard is a small boutique olive farm located in Devonvale, 7 km outside Stellenbosch in the Western Cape, South Africa. Portion 36 Olive Orchard is owned and run by Arend and Birgitta Hofmeyr.

There are nearly 2000 olive trees in our orchard. We planted the trees ourselves in 2007. We farm organically and feed the trees natural composts. Good soil and happy and healthy trees produce good quality olives. At Portion 36 we use both modern technology and old fashioned common sense – a combination that results in wonderful olives and a grateful environment. We love fresh and natural olive products, we pick our olives by hand and all products are made by us on the farm.

We make mono varietal Extra Virgin olive oils from five different cultivars. Visit our Olive Oils page for more information. We have our own press and besides pressing our own olives we press for othe small producers. You are welcome to visit our farm and do an olive oil tasting (by appointment).

We also make natural Kalamata table olives in a salt brine. See our Table Olives page for more information. We have a Kalamata Club for home curers and the club has published a Kalamata Guide.


NEWS: 2017 Olive Harvest@Portion36

The 2017 olive harvest has now (March) formally started. We will have a relatively small harvest 2017 and our order list for Kalamata olives is already full. We have a waiting list but there are no guarantees. In Western Cape we have a serious water shortage problem and this is one of the reasons for the smaller olive crops this season.

Once the olive oil pressing of oil starts we will be able to offer Olio Novello, the fresh, unfiltered extra virgin olive oil that is the ultimate taste experience for olive oil lovers. We will advertise on our Facebook page Portion 36 Olive Orchard. Like us and you will be automatically notified.

This year our olive self-picking will be limited due the the small harvest and the drought. We will only be open on Saturdays in April and if you want to come and pick please contact us and make an appointment.
