So, we found a beautiful property in Mangawhai, Northland, New Zealand that happened to have a fair few trees on it and decided to jump in gumboots (yes my first pair) and all, and produce this wonderful green extra virgin olive oil...
Our grove is home to a variety of birds, ducks and of course the two black dogs who love running through the trees - Its a dogs life!!
Hence the name, 'Two black dogs olive oil'- it's all about where it comes from, and its a little piece of our special place we'd like to share.
In May 2015 we harvested our first lot of olives -certified by Olives New Zealand as Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
We have won silver medals in the Oliveti (Northland), and Olives NZ EVOO awards for our 2015 Ascolano oil.
In 2016, both our Koroneiki and Ascolano oils have recieved bronze medals in the Olives NZ awards. Most recently we received a bronze in the Royal NZ Easter show awards, and a silver in the Olives NZ awards for our 2017 Ascolano.
We're loving experimenting with our oil in new recipes and sometimes simply as a dip with some homemade bread - Yum!
We'd love for you to try our oil - and let us know what you think...we think its pretty yummy, and sure you will too..
Graham, Nicky & the Two black dogs
