“Wonderful olives and fudge”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Second visit to Mt Stirling, and will go back when next I visit Stanthorpe area. The tastings available are varied & worth a go - several kinds of olives, plus dipping sauces, tapenades, dukkah and then there was the fudge! Oh... and good coffee too. Stocked up on my husband's favourite Kalamata olives in Raspberry Vinegar with Rosemary (he was the one who said he didn't like olives... till he tried these ones) plus lots more, including a big box of fudge. Good to see dear old Barney entertaining the visitors still. Take the children & feed the goats. You can easily while away several hours here.

“Warm and welcoming”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We came for the olives and left with so much more. We were encouraged to try all the olives on offer and just before buying my chilli olives (amazing) and truffle infused olive oil a lovely woman handed us 1/2 a loaf of bread so our kids could feed the goats. Won't cook a steak without their olive oil again and the kids are still raving about the gorgeous goats and corn chips next door at the chili tasting. My Aunty is a local to Ballandean who we don't see often, we'll be making the 4 hour trip again for the company, sights and supplies from this shop. Easter weather this year was spectacular. Thanks :)

Must see and do! The customer service was great. The fudge is divine and there are great gifts and things. Fresh local produce - beautiful olives and jams. Can't wait to visit again.

“Great Local Produce”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

This is what you expect from a country establishment. I'm not sure but you just get the feeling that this is a family run place full of country charm. The people are all friendly - take your time try this or that nothing is too much trouble. In fact we couldn't find what we were looking for - after asking one of the service staff was back in 10 minutes with a freshly filled bottle of flavoured olives.
The store which is housed in an industrial farm shed is filled with all types of produce centred around olives. This includes all types of infused olive oils, tapenades and of course olives themselves together with bottled infused fruits and fudges are also available. There is also all manner of serving dishes and bottles to compliment the produce. On the way in there is also a small stall selling all types of chilli produce.
Well worth a visit.
