The Basson family takes great pride in welcoming you to Darling Olives, a family-run business located on Alexanderfontein Estate just 3km outside of Darling. Our location offers the perfect balance of cool, refreshing air from the Atlantic and hot, dry summers – resulting in delicious olives that you simply have to experience.

It was an olive twig that the dove brought back to Noah, after the flood. An olive branch will always be a symbol of wisdom and peace and right through history olives nourished the body and olive oil was used in diets, as a cleanser, as medicine, for lighting and about a 1001 other uses.

It all started with experimenting with 20kg of olives. Through many trials and errors, they learned by experience and slowly built the business to include not only olives but also olive jams, pastes, rubs, chocolate, extra virgin olive oil, flavoured olive oils and even olive soaps.

Today they have a fully FSA audited factory processing about 100 tons of table olives, all from their own farm, as well as producing their own olive oils.

At Darling Olives, they not only produce great-tasting olives but also offer a great tasting experience so you can discover our range of delicious products right here on the farm.

Their tasting facilities can accommodate small groups (10-12 people) and large groups (up to 60 people), either around their main table or in the tasting hall.

They ask a nominal tasting fee of R40 per person for a group of up to 10 people and R45 per person for a group of more than 10 people.

Booking is recommended for larger groups, or to avoid disappointment.
