Overview

We are a small family-run boutique olive farm nestled in the renowned Robertson Breede River Valley surrounded by the Langeberg and Riviersonderend Mountains. We extract extra virgin olive oil and process our own unique range of table olives and tapenade. Come and enjoy the ambience of the Robertson Valley as well as the taste of our olives and olive oil, a fruit well-known for its remarkable health benefits. Heading out of Robertson towards Ashton on the Red you will turn left into into Klaasvoogds East (NOT Klaasvoogds West) and travel for about another 2km's till you see the big green Marbrin Olive growers board on your right, turn in there and follow the dirt road for another 2KM'S till you reach the tasting room. Road can be a little bumpy in places, but worth it.

Wow, that was a rather personal review! I can understand if you did not enjoy yourself at the tasting, but to say that the experience with my partner would probably have been better is just mean and frankly quite hurtful. I remember you well; you...More

Wine tasting is fun but quite repetitive and something like olive oil tasting is a little different. The Marbrin olive farm is about a kilometre down a farm track and is straight forward farm and home that does tastings. Our presentation was great fun with...More

Don't be deterred by the seemingly endless dirt track you have to endure to reach the barn where tastings take place. If you like olives (and maybe even if you don't) it will be worth it. The tastings are delivered with gusto and passion, and...More
