    Did you know?

    Did you know your favourite grains could have more pesticide residues than other food? Sadly, some commercial growers treat their crops with high amounts of harmful chemicals that can cause everything from mild skin irritations to serious diseases. Always opt for organic grains; they’re not only free of nasties, but they bring impressive health benefits to the table, too.

    Mount Zero

    As one of the oldest olive groves in Australia, the Mount Zero olive grove has stood the test of time. Located at the base of the Grampians northernmost summit, it’s home to 6000 Spanish Manzanilla and Gordal olive trees. Mount Zero is a family-owned-and-operated business that’s committed to flavour and quality; their values are evident in every olive, every jar. Speaking of commitment, it only harvests using biodynamic farming; a natural, eco-friendly approach to farming that avoids synthetic intervention. The grove is self-sustaining — it feeds the trees directly from the soil humus rather than chemical inputs, and the energy supply is sourced from off-grid wind and solar generators.
