About Julia King - Manager / Keith Hallett - Owner
" This magical place is our home, and nothing makes us happier than inviting you to come here and create your own beautiful memories. " ~ Keith & Elisabeth Hallett The story of Lonely Goat Olives began in 2001 when Keith & Elisabeth Hallett were travelling around the Hunter Valley wine region re-stocking their wine collection. Little were they to know that they would stumble on a 100 acre paddock with a few cattle and covered in tree stumps left by logging. It was love at first sight, the next Monday their offer was accepted and the journey began. With no idea what to do with this bush block with magnificent views Keith & Elisabeth consulted with the bottle of 2000 Shiraz they had just bought to try and work out what to do next. Gradually, soil improvement programs were put in place to breathe life into the cattle trodden paddocks. This was followed by the construction of 4 dams and a series of buildings. Keith & Elisabeth had a strong desire to be very kind to the environment and to be as self-sufficient as possible. In 2005 they were an early adopter of solar and wind technology to provide power for the entire farm. This was followed by rainwater harvesting involving a combination of tanks interconnected and allowing gravity fed water supply to all buildings. The quest for self-sufficiency continues with Keith & Elisabeth becoming self-sufficient in at least one more product each year. 2018 saw the introduction of a planting of saffron, turmeric and a number of other plants, and an expansion of the chook house to give the chickens more room to roam around (supplying Keith, Elisabeth and all the guests who come and stay with fresh eggs), and the construction of a large greenhouse for the ever expanding olive tree nursery. This story is a wonderful example of what can be achieved through hard work, vision and passion. Visit Lonely Goat Olives and hear the story told first had – you will be inspired. We look forward to meeting you!
