Duck Creek Olive Oil: Sally and Derek Holland
Our grove from where Duck Creek Extra Virgin Olive Oil is harvested is located close to the Mahurangi Harbour and 6km from the heart of Matakana. Travelling down a quiet country road, you will find the grove, which is nestled in a beautiful natural valley surrounded by New Zealand native trees and the gentle mist from the clear waters of Duck Creek.
Privately owned, managed and personally harvested by Derek and Sally Holland this grove has a decade of growth, offering a cross selection of Leccino, Frantoio, Koroneiki, Albany Gold, (J5) Chemali and Pendolino olive trees.
2010 Sample sent to Michael Bradley (Judge Los Angeles County Fair, Importer of premium quality olive oil from around the world) for evaluation. “I am pleased to tell you I have awarded your oil 91.7. It is clearly gold medal quality as the highest score I awarded any oil last year at the LA County Fair was 88. Congratulations it is amongst the three best oils in the world right now!”
