Green Olive at Red Hill encourages kids to enjoy and learn from the surroundings of a real working farm. Our Farm Kids program gives children the opportunity to meet farm animals, learn about where food comes, plant seeds and create their artistic impressions of the farm while outside in the fresh air and sunshine.

Green Olive at Red Hill nourishes family and friends with the goodness of the farm. We grow olives, grapes, herbs and veggies, raise sheep and chooks as well as use fresh produce from local farmers to create a range of tapas, wine and body products you’ll love! Farm the good life.

Our farm tapas and wine menu is available everyday from 9am until 4pm and then coffee, wine and dessert until 5pm.
