Aminya Grove Tour, Captains Flat – Sunday 18 March
18 March, 2018 @ 2:15 pm - 4:30 pm| $15
Come and visit this cool climate, high altitude Olive Grove located at Captains Flat. Producing Single Origin, Certified Organic ‘Olimia Estate’ Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Grown, harvested, pressed and bottled on farm using ‘Dry Method’ farming (no irrigation other than what nature provides).
Frantoio and Corregiola olives are grown on this farm.
Afternoon tea will be provided at the farm by Flat Out Produce and will include olive oil tasters, some other treats and Aminya Grove’s very own olive leaf tea.
$15 per adult, children free
Minimum 10 participants
All participants will need to meet Kerenza at the carpark at Wilkins Park in Captains Flat at 2:15pm. We will then leave in convoy at 2:20pm to head up to the olive grove.
Sturdy footwear and warm/waterproof clothing is highly recommended as the olive grove sits at between 1200-1500m above sea level and has its own special micro-climate (cold)
There is absolutely NO mobile reception at Aminya Grove; it drops out at around 2kms out of Captains Flat. There is only Telstra 4G in Captains Flat itself and some patches of reasonable mobile reception along Captains Flat Road (if coming from Queanbeyan/Bungendore) and the ‘other half’ of Captains Flat Road (referred to by the locals and the council as ‘Braidwood Road’) which takes you to Braidwood.
The unsealed roads are fine for normal, 2WD cars although Wild Cattle Flat Road is narrow (single lane) plus there is a large amount of wildlife around the area to look out for.
