Overview
More
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.

Went here not sure what to expect, but we thoroughly enjoyed the tasting of all the delicious products. Purchased a few of their products, unfortunately couldn't purchase more due to weight restrictions for our journey home to U.K.

A family run business with the friendly family dogs lounging on the patio & in the garden. The views are spectacular from the wrap around patio. The tasting experience is very informative. Clearly a passion of the owners.
