Pukara & Our Story

Pukara Estate was founded by Bruce Eglington, who planted the first trees in 1999 and was joined   12 months later by Steve Goodchild. The first commercial harvest took place in 2003 and the Pukara Estate brand was launched. Pukara Estate’s Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Vinegars are amongst Australia’s best, winning over 60 awards nationally. The products are produced and packaged on site, guaranteeing the freshest product throughout each season.

Pukara’s entire focus is about exceeding expectations through the delivery of absolute freshness, innovative flavour and consistent quality.

Steve and Racquel Goodchild now manage Pukara Estate’s operations across the country with an ever increasing range of products and distribution. The freshness, flavour and quality of our products are testament to the creativity, passion and commitment of our entire team. Our extensive range of products offer something gourmet for everyone to identify with, enjoy and indulge!!

Myself & my husband Stuart back packed around the world 2008/2009 where we found a job on the olive grove with Bruce, Steve & Racquel. We were part of the production/Pukara Team. We found a good friendship and business relationship that when we got back to the UK/Ireland we decided to import Pukara Products. We go back once a year now to do this harvest of the olives and get caught up with our friends in oz. We now do event throughout Ireland, N.Ireland & Scotland and supplie high end deli’s within thoose areas. We are always looking to grow our business.
