Hannaford Olive Oil is owned by David and John Hannaford.
David was an accountant who became General Manager of the Tresillian Family Care group of Mothers and Babies Hospitals.
John was a lawyer who became a Member of Parliament and Attorney-General for New South Wales.
The Hannaford Olive grove was the first large olive grove to be planted in the Southern Tablelands region. The establishment of the olive grove was part of a plan to establish a new business in the region.
Today, there are a number of National and International award winning olive groves in the Southern Tablelands region that are producing very high quality extra virgin olive oil.
