PROUD PRODUCERS OF EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Aquiferra is a boutique, single estate olive grove of 650 trees dedicated to producing superior quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). Located near the Ngaruroro River,south-east of Hastings in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, it shares the terroir of many of New Zealand’s finest vineyards.
Olive varieties include Frantoio, Leccino, Picual, Pendolino and Koroneiki pressed for oil, and some Kalamata and Manzanilla processed for table olives.
Aquiferra is a small, family business taking pride in doing things with care and enjoying the process. Most of the harvesting is now done by machine but some trees are still done by hand by our wonderful team of pickers who come every year. All the olives are cold pressed within hours of harvest. The oil is tested to ensure it meets international EVOO standards and is blended to achieve the best possible, well-balanced flavours.
Fresh, Extra Virgin Olive Oil is recognized as having many health benefits.
Aquiferra is proud to support the quality initiative from Olives New Zealand, the OliveMark, which guarantees an olive oil is of EVOO quality.
We're also now stocking Italian, 3 litre stainless steel drums (fustis) which are the best way to store oil. See the Oil Storage page for details.
