Cold Pressed, Free Run, Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Just as Nature Intended
We are Cindy and Tony Millar. Aorangi Estate was established in September 2009 when we hand-planted some 2000 trees in the Waipara Valley region of North Canterbury, famous for its wine, sheep and beef. Our choice of trees were mix of Tuscan and Greek varieties – all of which are doing well in the stoney loam soil.
The small olive press on site produces excellent cold pressed free run oil and we are continually looking to expand our enterprise in concert with like-minded neighbours.
