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
