Ruheleben Estate – Swakop River Olives

 

Swakop River Olives

Ruheleben is a German word, roughly translated as “peaceful life”, and it is the name of the grove where Swakop River Olives are grown 12 kilometres outside Swakopmund, Namibia. Ruheleben farm is on the banks of the Swakop River with views of endless sand, black rocky outcrops and sharply angled golden sand dunes, sphinx-like guardians of the silent desert. The silence is broken only by the intrusion of human activity.

The hardy olive seems to thrive in these desert conditions of heat, intense light and dry air. They can even withstand the blisteringly hot East winds in winter, which come hurtling down the desert plains to the coast, gathering heat and dust on the way down.

Farm and Workshop

The olives from Ruheleben are popular with the locals and used in many of the restaurants. Green and black olives are handpicked and sorted for the curing and bottling process. It’s a long process which is very labour intensive, with the emphasis on quality. Even the labelling, and the choice of bottles has been carefully done using Namibian artist Koos van Ellinckhuizen for the label design and Margaret Courtney-Clarke, a world renowned photographer for professional photographs for the lithographed tin. Proudly Namibian, Ruheleben went on to win the Platinum award at the November 2011 Made in Namibia Expo held in Windhoek.

Traditional Harvest

desert hills desert hills desert hills desert hills

 

 

 

 

 

The rural Topnaar (#Aonin) pastoralists and gatherers that live in the lower Kuiseb valley, seasonally move into the !Nara “fields” between the dunes, on their donkey carts , to harvest these valuable !Nara fruits.

The hand-picked fruit are cut in half and the flesh scraped into a large drum. The peels are used to feed the donkeys
The pulp-filled drum is heated over a low-burning fire under constant stirring to slowly separate the seeds from the liquid fruit pulp.

The fruit pulp is a valuable food resource and the seeds are sold to create important income for some 300 rural Topnaar who live along the dry river bed and depend on small stock farming and !nara harvesting for their livelihoods. This 8000-year old tradition of hand picking and preparing the fruit is kept alive as a valuable heritage passed from generation to generation.

Sustainability
In a quest to help secure the sustainability of the !Nara plants for future generations, Desert Hills has teamed up with the Goababeb Training and Research Centre. Among other things Gobabeb researches the ecology of this very dynamic desert plant and gives advice to harvesters in relation to conservation and sustainability. Further Desert Hills and Gobabeb exchange field data and harvest information and work on projects that envisage more community participation.
