Since ancient times olives have been associated with prosperity and vitality, while the olive tree itself is a revered symbol in religion and many cultures. Providing shade, shelter, sustenance, serenity and beauty, these venerable trees offer a myriad of benefits. Join us as we explore the wonderful world of Willow Creek oils and olives.
Willow Creek Estate lies in the Nuy Valley, in the Western Cape. Overlooked by the Rabie Mountain which forms part of the Langeberg Mountain range, the farm has been in the Rabie family since the late 1700s when it was first cultivated by Johannes Stephanus Rabie. His descendant, Andries Rabie, planted the first olive trees in 1999 and in 2002 the first oil was pressed.
Today Willow Creek Estate comprises 250 hectares, planted with 210 000 olive trees. We have established ourselves as one of the largest estate olive oil producers in the Southern Hemisphere.
An impressive track record of awards and accolades, both local and international, attests to the quality, consistency and appeal of the renowned Willow Creek range of extra virgin olive oils. For us, however, the best prize of all is sharing our passion with olive oil lovers around the world.
The two oldest buildings on the farm - dating back to the seventeenth century and the 1840's respectively - have been lovingly restored to preserve its character and history and is now utilised as offices and the Shoppe and Bistro.
An unique range of olive and tapas cutlery consisting of sterling silver, pewter, bone and indigenous wood, created in the studio of local jeweler and gold smith, Philip Joubert, are displayed and available for sale along with exquisite olive wood items from France.
A licensed bistro offers an olive inspired menu and guests can enjoy the freshly prepared cuisine either inside the authentic building or on the enclosed stoep.
