Paarl | Olyvenbosch has pioneered and introduced a successful ‘bag in a box’ packaging to their product, which gives the consumer a practical, hygienic & controlled tap dispenser and guarantees that the quality extra virgin olive oil contents retains its freshness until the last drop.
Olyvenbosch is in Windmeul, Agter Paarl on the Northern slopes of the Paarl Mountain range with views of Table Mountain in the distance. When the farm was purchased in 2004 by the van Eyssen family, it was planted with 22ha of table grapes supplying the export table grape market. During the first 4 years additions were made to the lifestyle component of the farm and in 2009 a strategic business diversification decision was made to remove 5ha of table grapes and replant 2650 olive trees. The following year another 5000 trees were planted to undeveloped land. The farm is currently (2016) under 5.5ha of table grapes and 23.5ha of olive trees (11 500 in total).
