Olieve & Olie began in 2000, as a small 15 acre property on the banks of the Gunbower Creek, 50km west of Echuca. The owners, Andy & Jude Steele, who originally had farmland on King Island, planted 2000 olive trees. The climate and soil of the property was the perfect condition for growing olives. The trees flourished and the olives were abundant and of superior quality. Shortly after their first harvest, Jude began making her first batch of olive oil soap, and hasn't looked back. In 2010, Andy & Jude sold their grove and moved to the Mornington Peninsula but they still sourced their olive oil from their old grove, maintaining the connection and quality of all their products.
