Te Arai Olive Estate
Spray free, unfiltered, hand harvested, and sustainably grown
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Our grove of 1200 trees is situated on a north facing slope overlooking the Mangawhai estuary, sand dunes, and Hen and Chicken Islands. The fertile clay loam and sheltered microclimate of our property combine to provide excellent conditions for growing olives.
Motutira is our premium Frantoio single estate extra virgin olive oil. It is fruit driven in style with a balance of pungency and bitterness. It is a fragrant oil of medium intensity with fresh olive fruit flavours, hints of green apples, fresh almonds, and a long persistent black peppery finish.
The Olive Shed
We’re currently converting half of our olive shed into short term accommodation with relaxing weekend getaways for culinary travellers in mind.
