Rotorua’s Agrodome hosting inaugural Olive Harvest Festival

PRESS RELEASE
Rotorua’s Agrodome hosting inaugural Olive Harvest Festival

Rotorua, New Zealand – 28 May 2014: The olives are plump and ripe for picking in the Agrodome grove and the inaugural 2014 harvest will be celebrated with an Olive Festival.

The idea of new MICE Market Sales Manager Diane Curtis, the one-day festival is on Saturday 7 June from 10am-2pm in the Education Centre at the Agrodome’s olive and kiwifruit orchard, where visitors will experience the workings of an Olive Grove first hand and press their own gourmet oil.

“An artisan olive oil maker from The Village Press will demonstrate how to achieve the best results before guests turn their hand to pressing olives, sampling flavours and bottling their own vintage oil,” Diane says “Then it’s time to relax over a sumptuous lunch with an olive themed menu created by our resident Chef.”

The Agrodome is one of New Zealand’s iconic tourist attractions and not only offers farm shows and tours but also operates as a 350 acre working sheep and cattle farm, part of which includes the organic olive grove.

“We are hoping to make this an annual event. The olive grove is a bit of a hidden secret on the farm and we’re very excited to be sharing its first ever olive harvest press with everyone.”

Tickets are $79 each and numbers are strictly limited. Book online at www.agrodome.co.nz

The Agrodome has won the coveted New Zealand Tourism Award for New Zealand's Best Visitor Attraction numerous times, and has been awarded more than once for its outstanding service and contribution to the New Zealand Tourism Industry. The Agrodome is not just a fun visitor attraction with an entertaining farm show and farm tour; it is also an operating 350-acre (160-hectare) working sheep and cattle farm with 1200 sheep and 120 beef cattle.
