We are a small family-run boutique olive farm nestled in the renowned Robertson Breede River Valley surrounded by the Langeberg and Riviersonderend Mountains. We extract extra virgin olive oil and process our own unique range of table olives and tapenade. Come and enjoy the ambience of the Robertson Valley as well as the taste of our olives and olive oil, a fruit well-known for its remarkable health benefits. Heading out of Robertson towards Ashton on the Red you will turn left into into Klaasvoogds East (NOT Klaasvoogds West) and travel for about another 2km's till you see the big green Marbrin Olive growers board on your right, turn in there and follow the dirt road for another 2KM'S till you reach the tasting room. Road can be a little bumpy in places, but worth it.

Wow, what a great time. The owner obviously enjoys his craft and gave a fantastic chat about the farm and it's produce. The tasting was excellent. You really can tell the difference between shop 'olive oil' and the real deal. We brought some olive oil as the taste is just so amazing compared to what we get in the uk.... More

After being an online customer for many years, I finally had the privilege of visiting the Marbrin Farm. This farm is run by an energized couple, Clive and Briony. Their service has always been excellent. Deliveries are speedy and efficient. But none of that prepared me for how lively, spontaneous and passionate these people are about their farm. It was...

We were saying at Excelsior Manor House nearby and Marbrin seemed a perfect opportunity to find out more about the olive farm and growing industry. But this was an amazing experience due to the charismatic manager who directed us in such a compelling manner and educated us during a wonderful olive oil/olive tasting. Beautiful setting and well worth an hour... More

My wife and I had to visited Marbrin after reading all the great reviews. And boy, we were so happy we did. Very educational and informative all paired with probably the best olive oils and products I have tasted, no wonder they are in the Top 5 in the country! Pity about the reviewer who think that it is ok... More

Briony, after whom the farm is named, started the talk to us about the oils and olives etc, but was so over the top, it was actually a relief when she had to go and handed over to her husband Clive. He chatted to us at a much more leisurely pace, and it was really interesting listening to him. However,... More

In a place known for its wine, Marbrin olive farm stands out as something different. The owner is very passionate about his craft and it shows in his enthusiasm during a tasting. Definitely worth a visit. Great lemoncello too.
