• Welcome to Ploughmans Hill Olives

    Proudly 100% Australian Owned

    Peter and Shirley Michalk decided to plant olives in 1995. The decision came about after assessing the best way to utilise two unused areas of the farm. These two blocks were unsuitable for grazing or cropping, so the Michalks looked into other options, and found that olives were one answer.

    The Wattle View grove was planted in 1995. Six varieties were originally planted, with four oil varieties and two pickling varieties. The first pressing for oil was in 1999, and since then, the Ploughmans Hill olives have produced top quality, prize winning, extra virgin olive oil and cosmetics in each season

  • Understanding Olive Oil

    Olive oil is one of the oldest and most natural ingredients used in the world. Unlike other oils, olive oil can have a range of tastes and aromas, from mild and light to rich and strong and is remarkably verstile in cooking.

    Using Olive Oil One of the many benefits of cooking with olive oil is that it can be heated to a higher temperature than other oils & remains healthy. Even though quality olive oil contains no preservatives, it will keep longer than other food oilsif kept in an airtight container protected from the heat and light. It’s best not to keep your olive oil in the fridge as this can cause it to become thick and cloudy.

    Health Benefits Olive oil is cholesterol free, & actually helps to reduce cholesterol levels, which helps with the risk of heart disease. It contains high levels of vitamin E and vitamins A, D & K and is a good source of anti-oxidants. Olive oil can help the digestive system function more efficiently and can benefit non-insulin dependent diabetics. Residents of Crete have the highest consumption of olive oil in the world and the lowest rate of heart related diseases

    Good Better Best

    Ploughman’s Hill Olives were first pressed in 1999 & has alway been graded ‘extra virgin’.

    Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    This oil is the finest product of the olive tree. It has excellent aroma, colour and flavour & a maximum acid content of 0.8%. Extra virgin is best used drizzled over salads or hot dishes to bring out the full flavour. Extra virgin is the best and healthiest of them all.

    ‘Virgin Olive Oil’

    Olive Oil

    ‘Olive oil’ while still healthy hasn't met the virgin, etxra virgin strict criteria. Olive oil is often a refined or blended oil. The acid content should not be more than 3.3%. A versatile oil because of its low flavour & aroma. Use in baking, frying & deep frying.
