Watercress Creek Olives & Limes

Pine Mountain

Watercress Olive and Lime Farm is located at Pine Mountain, where visitors can pick up fresh olives, limes and gourmet products from their tiny farm gate shop or a ready-made picnic pack to enjoy in the scenic grounds.

Owner Bernie is a fourth generation farmer on the 7.5ha property, which was purchased by his family back in 1890. The farm was originally a dairy farm, with some small crops, until Bernie first planted the olive trees back in 1998.

Today Watercress Farm has some 1100 olive trees producing manzanilla, arbequina, kalamata, jumbo kalamata and frantoio olives while the Tahitian lime orchard has some 600 trees. Farmer Bernie sells his produce direct to clubs in Brisbane and through his farm gate.

Bernie and wife Lorraine also make infused olive oils, extra virgin olive oil, olives, bakes olives, tapenades and
brochette spreads, balsamic glaze and vinegars as well as jams and cordials on site. Having been regulars at local markets with their range of bottled olives and oils for years, they now have a dedicated shop on the farm.

House specialities include a ‘bruschetta spread’ and whole figs preserved in a rich balsamic syrup. The figs, which are also grown on site are also made into a sweet delectable jam.

Good to know - In late November Bernie hosts an open day where people can come and try the produce and learn about the products. And in April each year he holds an olive festival, with stall holders selling local produce from honey to
wines and baked goods as well has his produce.

Need to know - The olive grove at Watercress Farm is now open for picnics, and offers picnic packs to buy with fresh olives, tapenade, dukkah and olive oil and bread.
