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.

We managed to find this wonderful place who grow and sell their own extra virgin olive oil and a few variations of their oil, also balsamic vinegar. Their olives are beautiful also. We were given a tasting by briony who explained everything well.

We traveled by car from Stellenbosch to Montagu and stopped for lunch in Robertson. A quick look on TripAdvisor revealed Marbrin as a good place to stop. It was a little hard to find but Google maps helped us the last bit. We got a very warming welcome and got to taste some excellent olive products. This place is a... More

The young, lively, engaging couple happily shared their knowledge with us, in the parents' absence (Had gone to the coast.) Thoroughly worth braving the heat and the bouncy drive along a farm road! We left with a large parcel of goodies for family and friends. Will order from them in the future! A visit to put on every Robertson area... More

We stopped here on the 24th. On the door was a notice to phone. At first we were reluctant as we didn't want to be a bother. Oh boy was i glad we did phone. What makes it special is the very personal attention we got from the owner. Chatting away and answering any questions we had. What a lovely... More

Amazing detailed friendly meet with this hard working, passionate olive farmer. A few tricks in the book. Ideas and explanations about product, produce farming and usage. Hugely entertaining as well as the dogs on the farm The sedes would recommend anyone making a booking for a tasting, or pop in to have a peak in the shop!

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...
