Boutique suppliers of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, olives and soap.
In 2004, they had their first olive picking and the tradition of a weekend at the olive grove began.
Pickers came from far and wide and so began the “Old Lorne Road Olives” business.
No strangers to the hospitality industry, the business quickly expanded—developing into a popular restaurant and gallery frequented by many locals and visitors, and featuring regularly in The Age's Good Food Guide.
In 2013, the couple decided to sell the business and 'downsize' to Birregurra— maintaining a commercial arrangement with the new owners to continue the production arm of Old Lorne Road Olive. So while Andrew and Judith kick back and enjoy a quieter pace of life in Birre, you can still find their popular range of olive products, including extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, olives and soap at local Otways markets, including this weekend's Birregurra Sunday Market.
Make sure you pop by and say hi Andrew and Judith. There are always tempting tasters of their products on hand and I challenge anyone to walk past their stall without being tempted to having a yarn with them about their goodies, blues music and living the dream in Birre!
Old Lorne Road Olives are members of the Otway Harvest Trail.
