    Mossgrove Olive Grove

    Producing high quality 'olio novello' olive oil.

    Oil Analysis

    Samples of the 2002 Frantoio were sent to NSW Agriculture, Wagga Wagga for testing;   Oil was extracted using the 'Cold Press Extraction' method, and the parameters measured (see the table below).

    From these results we are confident that MossGrove is capable of producing high quality extra virgin olive oil.  Stage two of our trial has seen a further 100 Frantoio planted (2002). The oil has distinct  'green apple' and pepper flavours.
