Also known as Puy lentils, they grow well in the Wimmera. They have a deep nutty flavour & hold their shape when cooked. Perfect for summer salads, winter soups & braised dishes. Great with feta & goat cheese. They do not need to be soaked & take 20 min to cook. Not organic but grown in Victoria.
Mount Zero Olives is a family owned olive grove three hours west of Melbourne on the northern edge of the Grampians National Park in Victoria, Australia. Commitment to flavour, sustainable farming and a passion for quality ingredients defines Mount Zero and all that they gather.
Planted in the 1940's, The Mount Zero Olive Grove is one of oldest olive groves in Australia.
A total of 6000 Spanish Manzanilla and Gordal Olive trees line the base of the Grampians most northern summit - Mount Zero. Here Mount Zero practice biodynamic farming techniques and have the international Demeter certification. The grove is self-sustaining in its farming practices - feeding the trees directly from the soil humus rather than chemical inputs and their energy supply is sourced from off-grid wind and solar generators.
Produced in The Grampians, VIC.
