Swartrivier Farm is the oldest olive farm in the area and a true landmark of the Prince Albert community.


Beginning just beyond the town’s doorstep, our farm stretches over 668 hectares of beautiful Karoo countryside.


The 17 hectare olive orchards are home to more than 3,000 mature trees- Mission and Manzanilla, completed by Leccino, Frantoio and other oil cultivars. We have a proud tradition of growing delicious olives and producing our own extra virgin oil and other products, all available under the O for Olive brand.


Our products are available in the farm shop which also offers yummy breakfasts, light lunches and something for the sweet tooth.


A special offer includes a factory tour, tasting and light lunch for R95 per person.

Hendry Olivier (Kokkedoor) has taken charge of running the Olive Branch. Our staff of the last 13 years are still with us and Bokkie’s role is now that of Italian (South African) grandfather and mentor. Bokkie has had to face up to the fact that more customers want to have their pictures taken with Hendry than he ever experienced!

Experience good food made with love!

Kindly contact Hendry or Bokkie for bookings on 0720803619 (Hendry) or  0828927222 (Bokkie) bokkieb@iafrica.com

Obviously Hendry will not open if there are no bookings, or if the small number of bookings makes it uncomfortable for guests and restaurant and will phone guests in good time if opening becomes impossible.
