Tathra Homestead produces extra virgin olive oil. It is the business and passion and lifestyle of the Darmody family. Extra virgin olive oil is the natural oil (freshly squeezed) from quality olives that have been picked straight off the tree and processed as soon as possible without the use of any chemical, or excessive heat, which ensures that the oil's remarkable health benefits, flavour and freshness are maximised.

The olives are grown on the family's property near Kapunda, South Australia, on the Western side of the Barossa Valley. 'Tathra' is an aboriginal word meaning 'beautiful country'. The family has been at Tathra Homestead since 1991 and has reintroduced both plant and animal biodiversity to the property, while planting the olive grove.

Tathra Homestead
is a signatory to the Australian Olive Association Code of Practice. The Code of Practice (COP) aims to guarantee the authenticity and quality of certified products and distinguish them from imported products.

We are applying for conversion status for organic certification. This process will take at least three years.

We are committed to the principles of organic production, implementing chemical-free production throughout the property, including our own vegetable garden and free-range chickens.
