Life and the universe have a funny way of making connections, renewing them and surprising one with synchronous events.

Zoetigheyd award winning extra virgin olive oil

Many years ago and I do mean many. When you could still give someone a hug. The Nokia 2110 had yet to be built, and Nelson Mandela was still our President. I worked with a lovely lady called Sandi. We looked after the Girlswear clothing ranges for a large retailer and she was so good at her job I had very little to do.

Her partner Peter was an entrepreneur with a love of olives and I recall many meetings at their house where the lid was lifted off a big tub of olives and Peter would scoop out a handful for us to snack on.

Since the turn of the century (man that sounds like a Dickens novel) we have gone our different ways in the world. I’ve been kept up to date with their olive exploits over the years as a very good friend of mine is now one of Peter’s business partners in another venture.

Peter owns Zoetigheyd farm outside Robertson in the Renosterveld and has been producing one of South Africas finest olive oils. Last year they were voted one of the 10 best in the country. The farm uses no chemicals at all and the oil is cold pressed on the morning the olives are picked for the best flavour.

We have been very fortunate to get our hands on some of that oil this year and I have added it to our online shop.

You can order it now at www.richardbosman.co.za Stock is VERY limited so please don’t wait for level 2 to order 🙂
