In May, New York Olive Oil competitions were announced and our Picholene olive oil was awarded a Gold. The New York competition is considered the largest and most prestigious olive oil contest in the world. There were almost 900 entries from over 26 countries and only 80 golds. Along with Old French Road 6 other New Zealand winners were, Kapiti Olives, Loopline Olives, Woodside Bay, Loopline and Kakariki. Kakarike is the only other South Island grove winner of a gold award.
