About the farm
Bought in 2001, it appeared that this was a farm where nothing would grow. However, owners Hennie and Suna Volschenk saw the potential and after conferring with legendary SANParks CEO, the late Dr Tol Pienaar, the Olive Estate was born.
The first trees were planted in 2005 despite the sandy soil and having to keep the moles at bay. As the trees approached maturity it became apparent that the limestone rich soil results in a truly unique flavour oil. By 2013 we were ready to produce our own oil.
Producing multiple varietals (Mission; Carotina; Leccino and Frantoio) to blend truly exceptional olive oils, Kleinbergskloof's Olive Oil has been the recipient of SA Olive's prestigious awards year on year since our first entry in 2013.
Kleinbergskloof also offers a number of other products including marinated table olives and preserves as well as the finest balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy. Our wedding venue and tasting room were built in 2014. This, together with our deli and family restaurant, make Kleinbergskloof Olive Estate a true gem destination in South Africa.
Find us on the banks of the beautiful Goukou river in Stilbaai. We are an easy 26km from the N2 high-way and a 3.5 hour drive from Cape town.
