Wild Olive Guest Farm

About Us

The Greater Harding Family

Meet your hosts

The farm has been in our family since 1993 and at that stage was set up as a small-scale sheep farm, which our family enjoyed over weekends and holidays.

In 2000 Karen’s sister Hazel took over the management of the farm and introduced the permaculture system of organic gardening which we have continued to this day. The farm was also opened up for accommodation and Wild Olive Farm was born.

Karen and I “retired” to the farm in 2011, and along with our daughter Linden, who joined us many years later, still enjoy managing the farm and welcoming guests to taste the lifestyle we are fortunate enough to enjoy every day.

We have a small and happy “family” of employees who work alongside us and guests can be assured all their needs are taken care of.

Organic Vegetable Garden & Shop

Our little “honesty box” shop stocks our fresh produce as well as bakes and preserves, such as Linden’s now famous Health Rusks and Granola, as well as jams, chilli sauces, olives, farm bread (order in advance), lemonade and much more.

We look forward to welcoming you to Wild Olive Farm, our little piece of heaven.
