With great sadness, we advise that Steve Milton, olive grower and President of the West Australian Olive Council (t/as Olives WA), passed away on 12th January 2022 in a tragic farm accident.
Steve was an active member of the WA olive industry since establishing Rokewood Olive Grove with his wife, Janine in Balingup, producing award-winning olive oils since 2013. Through his many years of active involvement with the South West Olive Association, also as a longstanding olive oil judge, and later as Director and President of the West Australian Olive Council, Steve made an enormous and lasting contribution to the industry. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing and working with him.
The WA Olive Council extends their deepest sympathies to wife; Janine, sons Mike and Rob and the extended family and friends during this difficult time.
