Hallett describes her time in the industry as ‘wonderful and interesting’ over the past 10 years. “My great great grandfather, Thomas Duell (importer and grower of some of the first olive trees in South Australia in the 1850’s) must surely be sitting on his little pink cloud and smiling on his descendants,” Hallett said. “However, no amount of wishing or effort can stop the march of the years and it is time to call it quits.”

“It has been wonderful. It has been very interesting times and exciting over the 10 seasons it has taken to get The Olive Press to its present viable status,” she said.
