Welcome to Kredouw Olive Estate

 Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother that he was "struggling to catch the (olive trees). They are old silver, sometimes with more blue in them, sometimes greenish, bronzed, fading white above a soil that is yellow, pink, violet tinted orange...very difficult". He found that the "rustle of the olive grove has something very secret in it, and immensely old. It is too beautiful for us to dare to paint it or to be able to imagine it".


Kredouw Olive Estate is a small attractive farm lying at the foot of the Kredouw Pass in the exquisite Prince Albert Valley on the R407, between Klaarstroom and Prince Albert (25km from Prince Albert). The farm lies at the foot of the mighty Swartberg Mountains. It totals 1000 hectares of which 22 hectares are olives 7 hectares nuts (pecans and almonds). It also grows apples, cherries and figs. All these crops are irrigated with fresh, cold and pure mountain water collected on the peaks of the Swartberg.
