Presented by Richard Seymour. Richard and his parents Neil and Jane, of Mount Zero Olives, grow and make olive-based products, bio-dynamically and sustainably, in their olive grove near the Grampians, that was planted in the 1940's. As a family they have spent the past 24 years nurturing the previously abandoned olive grove back into mass production, and building an iconic Australian brand.
