Adopt an Olive Tree
What is Adopt and Olive tree?
Adopt an olive tree for a year and receive all the produce from it.
Imagine that! A happy little olive tree growing quietly in sunny Hawke’s Bay with your name in it. Then twice a year you get a package with all the produce from it.
You get to dunk bread in your own olive oil, or eat olives from your own tree right here in NZ. All delivered to your door. How good is that!
What’s more you can visit your tree as often as you like. Bring a picnic, whisper some encouraging words to it, or simply give it a hug and encourage it to grow.
You can keep in touch with your tree with regular updates on Facebook.
How does it work and what do I get?
Your adoption gets you product from your tree. All of it!
As olive trees are a bit funny and sometimes produce less some years than others (like the years when you don't visit...). We guarantee that your package will contain the following:
These dates coincide with the release of the new season olive oil and new season olives.
As one of 235 trees in the Telegraph Hill Olivery grove, your tree will swap its olives with those around it, giving you a selection of different oils and olives in each parcel. Your trees barter system means your tree will produce for you a variety of different products each year!
Your September oil parcel will contain three bottles of Extra Virgin Olive Oil:
One bottle of Barnea / Manzanillo oil, one infused oil, and one Leccino olive oil known for its peppery finish.
Your March olive parcel will contain six 300gm pouches of olives:
2 x Kalamata, 2 x Lemon and Herb, and 2 x Semi Dried Sicilian Style Olives.
The perfect gift
Give the gift of adoption. Perfect for a wedding, birthday or Christmas present for the olive connoisseur. If you prefer to give the certificate yourself, we can send the adoption certificate straight to you, so you can hand it over yourself. We’ll send all the produce straight to the lucky recipient. We will confirm all delivery address's for certificate and packages at time of adoption, if you move in the subsequent 12 months please tell us so we can update our records.
For $120 per adoption year you will receive an adoption certificate and two product packages over the year. Please note: international adoption will incur an additional freight charge.
