Boundary Bend Olives co-founder Rob McGavin says the company’s oil production is expected to increase as its immature orchards develop.

DESPITE a wet start to the season, Boundary Bend Olives has experienced one of its biggest yields this year, producing 13.2 million litres of olive oil.

The company has orchards at Boundary Bend, Wemen and Boort and completed its olive harvest last weekend.

Boundary Bend Olives co-founder Rob McGavin said the orchards produced 89,000 tonnes of olives this season, which were of high quality, even though 60mm of rain in late April at Boundary Bend caused a few problems.
