Gantouw Farm, Knorhoek Estate (Farm in Cape Town) Helderberg Rural, Cape Town, 7135

ABOUT OUR FARM

Gantouw Farm is situated in the Sir Lowrys Pass overlooking False Bay. In days gone by the Pass was known as Gantouw (Elands) Pass by the Khoisan people who hunted the beautiful antelope in the area.
The Pass was also one of the main wagon trails to the interior of the country and the tracks of the wagons can still be seen along the old pass.
The Farm enjoys sweeping views over False Bay but also endures extreme weather conditions including high winds and above average rainfall.

EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

We grow 3 types of olives on Gantouw Farm, the Frantoio, which produces a more peppery oil and Leccino which produces a mild sweet flavoured oil are both from Tuscany and the Californian Mission Olive which is generally used in both table olives and in oil. The oil is an award winning cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. Our oil is medium flavoured and full of th fruitiness that South African oil is famous for.
