Central Aust farm trials olive oil production

A farmer south of Alice Springs says he has the good oil on the next horticultural crop for the Territory.

Oak Valley has pressed the Territory’s first batch of olive oil after trialing a 400 kilogram crop.

Farm manager Robert Le Rossignol says while he is starting small, he hopes it will become their main product.

“We’re still trying to look out and see where we’re going,” Mr Le Rossignol said.

“We’d like to look after our own back yard for a start which is possibly Alice Springs, Darwin, have a look around there and if we got a get a bit of demand outside the Territory then we may have to go out.”
