On the sun soaked slopes of the Rooiberg in the ancient Renosterveld lie the olive groves of Zoetigheyd farm.

Out of the harsh alluvial soils of the succulent veld the age old trees draw their nourishment and produce some of the world's most beautiful natural olive oil.

At Zoetigheyd, we are at peace with Nature, at peace with Mother Earth, at peace with all life and at peace with the sun and moon. Together we combine our energies to create for you the most delicious oil imaginable.

Only compost and natural compounds are used. Drip irrigation conserves our water reserves. Under the clear skies of the Klein Karoo the berries mature, are hand picked in the coolness of the morning to preserve their most fragrant flavours, taken to the press and the oil you will so enjoy is extracted immediately. By carefully blending the oils from three cultivars, Zoetigheyd farm produces a mild and an intense flavored oil. For the casual gourmet, the mild flavored oil enjoys strong support.

However, those who have enjoyed the salads and cooking of the Southern European kitchen, the ciabatta dripping in olive oil with a glass of well chilled wine, will quickly recognize the Zoetigheyd intense fruity blend as the one to go for. It has so much verve, character, personality and presence from the Renosterveld, the heat of the sweet Karoo air and the gracious peppery essences of Africa.

Delicious !
