Olives galore at Babylonstoren

April 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Presented by Linda Costa and Klaas Stoffberg

Bring your hat and comfortable shoes because we are going to the orchards! We take a walk through the olive orchards with Linda Costa, doyenne of the olive industry in South Africa, who will explain how to grow, maintain and harvest olives. Then the man in charge of our olive production, Klaas Stoffberg, will take you on a tour of our olive oil production plant.

We move from olive trees to olive oil, discussing the production process, selection of olive oils for cooking, as well as a tasting of faulty oils and some of this season’s delicious fresh olive oils.

Interested in preserving your own olives? Linda will share her tried-and-tested methods with you.

An olive inspired lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price. For hotel guests, the workshop is included in your stay.
