Cominos Olive Groves

Cominos Olive Groves is a labour of love and honest hard work! We are located an hour south-west Toowoomba, 20 minutes from Felton. Our family is third-generation Greek Australian. We took on a small mixed farming operation in 2003, which included 1000 small olive trees and a davey pump. Today we have approximately 5000 olive trees including Manzanillo, Kalamata, Frantoio and other oil-producing and table olive varieties.

Our business has grown to include the production of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, natural table olives, tapenade, handmade olive oil soap, garlic and livestock rearing (including our donkeys Belle and Beau). Our products are produced on our farm and are chemical, preservative free and delicious! We look forward to sharing our products with you at the Felton Food Festival.
