We are a small family-run boutique olive farm nestled in the renowned Robertson Breede River Valley surrounded by the Langeberg and Riviersonderend Mountains. We extract extra virgin olive oil and process our own unique range of table olives and tapenade. Come and enjoy the ambience of the Robertson Valley as well as the taste of our olives and olive oil, a fruit well-known for its remarkable health benefits. Heading out of Robertson towards Ashton on the Red you will turn left into into Klaasvoogds East (NOT Klaasvoogds West) and travel for about another 2km's till you see the big green Marbrin Olive growers board on your right, turn in there and follow the dirt road for another 2KM'S till you reach the tasting room. Road can be a little bumpy in places, but worth it.

We got lost on the dirt track but didn't mind because the views were breathtaking. When we got to the reception area it was empty but we sensed the warmth, and a beautiful collie kept us company - and then Clive appeared and we had the best hour or so in his company tasting every permutation of oils and tapenades....

Teenage friendly family outing on a working olive farm. Some tasting and very informative talk by the farmer. Well worth a visit even if all the members of the family is not olive fans. Beautiful surroundings. Recommend that you buy some of their lovely olive oils and olives.

Highly recommended for the oil and the limoncello. Embarrassed to say that the limoncello was so delicious and freezing cold that we polished it all off that morning. A great little delight well worth visiting.

Really interesting and fun. Entertaining explanation of the oil making process. Made to feel really welcome. Wonderful truffle oil and fig jam. I do hope they manage to find a way to export to U.K. Well worth a visit.... thanks for the hospitality!

Off the beaten track with minimal signage to follow this olive farm is worth seeking out. Marbrin Olive Oils are not on the map yet but they are in ABSA top 5 olive oil producers. If ABSA can find them so can you! Marbrin farm has over 9000 olive trees and they know a lot about making olive oil. The... More

We stopped at Mabrin to taste some olive oil, but the road to the tasting was breathtaking on it's own. Once there we tasted a few oils and went home with four bottles! Lovely olive oils, great people and beautiful orchards.

Last year we discover this' farm by accident, this year we were on a re-supply mission. Not to be missed is the Truffle Oil, the Intense table oil, or the "normal" cooking or drizzling oil. The owner took time out to explain the processes involved and the many products available. We also adopted an olive tree which allowed us to... More

Went here not sure what to expect, but we thoroughly enjoyed the tasting of all the delicious products. Purchased a few of their products, unfortunately couldn't purchase more due to weight restrictions for our journey home to U.K.

We visited Marbrin over the weekend and it was fantastic. You can immediately see that the people of Marbrin Olive farm are passionate about their business and keen to share it with others. I've certainly gained valuable knowledge about what is and isn't a quality olive/olive oil. DEFINITE recommendation for all the avid and novice olive/olive oil Iovers.
