Spring Creek Grove is owned and managed by partners Karen Hawley and John Speight. Karen has a background in public health (nursing) and John has an environmental consultancy background. Their approach to grove management and oil production is strongly influenced by our education and previous careers.
The grove was planted in the late 1990’s. They moved from Sydney for a tree change, and bought the grove in early 2012 and have been rejuvenating it since then. They have approximately 1000 olive trees; Frantoio and Manzanillo varieties. Their trees are used for “Curious Fox” branded olive oil production, although they may trial table olives in the future.
