About us

Lentara Grove is one of Tasmania's oldest olive groves, located in Tasmania's beautiful Tamar Valley.  

Run by husband and wife team, Martin & Sophie Grace, we take great pride in producing premium quality olive products from olives lovingly grown and tended on site.  Our small grove is located on a north-facing slope on a ridge above the Tamar River - this site provides generous amounts of sunlight to ripen the olives to perfection as well as the perfect soil conditions to keep the trees happy.

We are all about sustainable farming - treating our trees and our farm respectifully so our environment remains as pristine as possible, our trees are as happy as possible and we can bring you a diverse range of products all grown, picked, processed, packed and labelled on site by us.

Join us in 'la vita bella' and treat yourself to some Lentara goodness today or buy as a gift for a friend or family member.  It is also perfect as a unique corporate gift or wedding bonbonniere.
