At Prince Albert Olives, Fred Badenhorst and his son Hein continue the tradition of a long line of farmers in a family who have lived off the Karoo soil and its bounty for generations. They saw that the unique microclimate of the Prince Albert district was producing beautiful figs, grapes, pomegranates and citrus – and realised that olives would be a natural fit.
They followed international practice to establish orchards and continue to harvest and process the fruit according to these high standards to this day.
The Badenhorst farm has a variety of Frantoio, Coratina, Favolosa, Kalamata and Manzanilla olives, which are used for their Karoo olive oil blend. They also brine Kalamata and Manzanilla olives as wonderful eating olives.
