We are a small family-run boutique olive farm nestled in the renowned Robertson Breede River Valley surrounded by the Langeberg and Riviersonderend Mountains. We extract extra virgin olive oil and process our own unique range of table olives and tapenade. Come and enjoy the ambience of the Robertson Valley as well as the taste of our olives and olive oil, a fruit well-known for its remarkable health benefits. Heading out of Robertson towards Ashton on the Red you will turn left into into Klaasvoogds East (NOT Klaasvoogds West) and travel for about another 2km's till you see the big green Marbrin Olive growers board on your right, turn in there and follow the dirt road for another 2KM'S till you reach the tasting room. Road can be a little bumpy in places, but worth it.

Last year we discover this' farm by accident, this year we were on a re-supply mission. Not to be missed is the Truffle Oil, the Intense table oil, or the "normal" cooking or drizzling oil. The owner took time out to explain the processes involved and the many products available. We also adopted an olive tree which allowed us to... More

Went here not sure what to expect, but we thoroughly enjoyed the tasting of all the delicious products. Purchased a few of their products, unfortunately couldn't purchase more due to weight restrictions for our journey home to U.K.

We visited Marbrin over the weekend and it was fantastic. You can immediately see that the people of Marbrin Olive farm are passionate about their business and keen to share it with others. I've certainly gained valuable knowledge about what is and isn't a quality olive/olive oil. DEFINITE recommendation for all the avid and novice olive/olive oil Iovers.

A family run business with the friendly family dogs lounging on the patio & in the garden. The views are spectacular from the wrap around patio. The tasting experience is very informative. Clearly a passion of the owners.

We loved the olives and balsamic vinegar. We also learnt so much about olives and olive oil, and the tasting experience was great. Their Balsamic reduction is something special. Tapenade is lip licking too. Fig jam to die for. It is a pleasure to be met with such friendly, professionalism.

Clive and Briony, together with their lovely dogs and cat made our tasting experience spectacular. From the get go, Clive entertained a group of us and made us all participate in the tasting. Their olives and products are of high quality and definitely a game changer. We tried some of their homemade ice cream and it blew us away. We... More

Once you find Marbrin it is a lovely place with a very caring owner. Loved the olives and balsamic vinegar but the newly made fig jam was to die for. Hopefully it will still be in the jars when we get home! Well worth a visit even if it is only to meet the owners who are so enthusiastic and... More

I was honestly mind blown by this experience talking as someone who does not like olives in the least. It is so much more than just olive tasting. It's a chance to learn as well as taste & socialise, but I am not here to give it all away. Just go there it's awesome!!
