20 Jun Camilo Olives story June 30 2012
Teesdale olive grower Joan McGovern is on a crusade to educate on the joys of extra virgin olive oil. The managing director of Camilo Olives started hunting got industry knowledge when her family planted a small grove of 3300 trees on flat sandy loam as “olive novices” in 2002.
“It was a steep learning curve,” she says. But it’s been a rewarding journer, with the Camilo label amassing a swag of awards over the past few years for its extra virgin olive oils that are processed on-site.
“Australian olive oil is just fabulous,” Joan says.
