Narranghi Olive Grove first Two Sisters pressing

Di and Warren West of Narranghi Road, together with Di’s sister Kerry and Paul Moran of Sydney, have produced their first pressing of olive oil from the Narranghi Olive Grove, just outside Braidwood.

Narranghi (Nar-ang-guy) means Peak of the Mountain, and Di moved back to the family land nearly 6 years ago, and the sisters decided on planting olives soon after.

The Two Sisters label, derives from the two sisters who’s great grandfather, Irishman John O’Toole arrived in Australia and settled on the property in the 19th century. He lived to 104 in the district.

With around 1100 trees in the grove, the learning curve for the new growers has included keeping the roos from the new shoots with electric fencing, and controlling the birds who love the ripe fruit.
