2250 Bull Creek Rd, Tooperang SA 5255
Peninsula Providore Farm is a family run, artisan Extra Virgin Olive Oil business based at Currency Creek on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. Here, Mel and Brook tend to their two olive groves to produce premium quality, award winning extra virgin olive oil. Our Nangkita Grove, nestled just down the road from the Cox scrub on Bull Creek Road in Tooperang houses our pop-up farm shop. Visitors to the grove may be able to spot sheep, kangaroos or all manner of wildlife and bird life as they weave their way through the grove to arrive at our production shed. Here, guests may indulge in a seated flight of premium quality extra virgin olive oils matched with locally baked bread and other goodies from the Peninsula Providore range, all whilst glimpsing the dormant Olive Oil production facility.
We provide Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a lot of local hospitality venues, cafes and restaurants which were all forced to close down; retail stores also lacked visitation and were forced to close. As such, our sales dropped around 27%. We have created a pop-up shop at the farm to try and capitalise on the number of people visiting the region looking for things to do. With restricted numbers able to eat out, we now provide another activity for visitors and locals to participate in whilst in the region. We have also been pushing our online sales, and social media presence.
