Olives with a Mission! All profits from this entire batch of Mission olives will be donated to Blaze Aid.
Mission is a small olive variety with big flavour - fruity, nutty and much richer than our Verdale and Arbequina olives. Mission are our personal favourite! Picked purple/black and naturally fermented for over 12 months, we then hand grade and jar for your enjoyment. Like all our olives, they are estate produced and certified organic.
It's been devastating to see the bushfire crises unfold in our wonderful country. Thankfully we have been safe here this season, however after the 2014 Grampians bushfire burnt part of our grove we benefited from and witnessed first hand the fantastic work of Blaze Aid in our area; helping to rebuild and lift community spirits. When it came to thinking about which charity Grampians Olive Co would support, Blaze Aid was the obvious choice and we are delighted to be able to "pay it forward".
"Blaze Aid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, our volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed. Equally important, volunteers also help to lift the spirits of people who are often facing their second or third flood event after years of drought, or devastating losses through bushfires. BlazeAid volunteers work in a disaster-affected area for many months, not only helping individuals and families, but also helping rebuild the local communities."
