Olio Bello in Cowaramup is an interesting place to visit due to the consistency and quality of its olive oils and other products.

The Margaret River region certainly has more than its fair share of attractions for foodies, and this olive oil farm is certainly worth taking the trouble to stop and enjoy.

Olio Bello organic farming

Olio Bello Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is grown and pressed on this 320 acre property. The farm is surrounded by dramatic natural beauty where olives thrive in an ideal Mediterranean climate.  The award winning olive oils that are produced there reflect a long-term labour of love and commitment to sustainable agriculture and organic farming principles.

Naturally, Olio Bello has a shop which sells an enormous range of products.

Not confined to olive oils, visitors can also purchase a large range of gourmet condiments, soaps that are made from olive oil and special gift packs.

Local produce in the restaurant

The farm also has a restaurant, which specialises in preparing seasonal food that is flavoured with the various types of olive oil.  The food here not only tastes delicious, but looks sensational as fresh herbs and edible flowers are featured in the salads.

At Olio Bello they take their organic farming credentials very seriously. Olio Bello’s Pieralisi pressing mill uses 100% filtered rainwater for the cleaning process, ensuring premium quality. Olio Bello extra virgin olive oils are unfiltered and allowed to naturally settle in stainless steel vats kept at a controlled temperature.

Turning the farm organic has restored the natural balance of the environment. Active soil care, erosion control and efficient water control deliver further significant benefits.

The farm is a delightful place to stop for either a snack or for lunch, and the range of products available to try in the tasting room are mouth-wateringly good.
