“Elaionaki Extra Virgin Olive oil derives solely from olives grown in our small grove overlooking the Gulf of Pagasitikos in central Greece.
As a family business we can trace the oil from our trees through cold pressing and shipping to Poundbury where we do the bottling and labelling. It has a delicious light fruity flavour which is reminiscent of the fresh olive oil enjoyed in local Greek Tavernas, unlike that sold in most supermarkets.”
The Gardens Group have three multi award-winning Garden Centres, each with a restaurant serving up delicious homemade food using local ingredients.
Castle Gardens is in the historical walled garden of Sherborne Castle; Brimsmore Gardens and its award-winning farm shop is in a setting that was once a fruit farm on the edge of Yeovil and Poundbury Gardens grew in a wonderfully atmospheric converted Victorian farm building in Dorchester.
