The Mount Zero story began in 1946, when farmer and entrepreneur, Jacob Friedman, recognized the Wimmera/Grampians region as prime olive-growing country and began planting some of the first commercial olive groves in Australia. In 1993, the Seymour family bought part of Jacob Friedman’s original plantation at the base of Mount Zero. Today, with 30 years’ experience in the growing, fermenting and milling olives and olive oil, Neil, Jane & Richard Seymour are now working with like-minded Victorian olive growers to produce some of Australia’s finest and most rewarded olives and olive oils.
Today Mount Zero draws on produce from the Wimmera and Grampians region, as well as select olive groves across Victoria. Commitment to flavour, biodynamic and sustainable farming and a passion for quality ingredients defines the Mount Zero brand.
