Selba Farm is a medium-sized olive oil producer located in central Victoria.
The farm was founded by Chris Balaratnam, a professional Agricultural Engineer. He is a veteran agriculturist, having worked on many different projects and lived in many different countries in his 40 years in the industry.
Chris grew up with spices and condiments as part of a regular diet, and this early exposure meant that he appreciated more the health value of these items and benefits they bring.
We have added new exciting ventures:
- Grape wine
- Apiary (beekeeping)
- Garlic cultivation
- A complete olive oil production and food packaging facility
- Free range pastured poultry production
And we have great interest in doing more.
Selba Farm is an establishment of passion and personal desire. We take great pride in producing health food and Australian-grown produce & products for local consumption. The farm has grown consistently for the last 16 years.
We have achieved this through building relationships based on trust and the assurance of satisfaction and win-win attitudes towards sales and personal service. All of which are values we intend to continue to provide well into the future.
