The Hunter Olive Association is an association of olive growers throughout the Hunter Valley. The Association publishes a newsletter and is here for the benefit of olive growers and olive lovers generally.

Our growers produce olives suitable for both olive oil and table in a wide variety of locations throughout the Hunter Valley. We can assist with information about sourcing and planting olive trees, Australian olive oil, locally grown and pickled table olives, technical assistance, new plantings, pests and diseases.

We also provide information on how to grow olives, how to process the oil and where to get help, as well as links to other regional associations and our national body: the Australian Olive Association.

The Hunter Olive Association also holds an annual Hunter Valley Olive Show, open to both members and non-members where olives, olive oils, olive based soap and other related products can be tested an appraised.

The Hunter Olive Association has recently published an e-book: The Hunter Olive Handbook.
This comprehansive guide to growing olives is based around Australian conditions and problems: and how to overcome them. Copies are available on Amazon as an e-book for $29.99, or as a printed hard copy from the HOA Treasurer, Alan Smith for $65.00 ($45.00 for HOA members).

A sample chapter of the book is available here.
