More about OBI OBI Essentials
Olive Oil and Green Tea are just two of the products available from Obi Obi Essentials. The hinterland of the sunshine coast is the home of this family run business that grows and produces olive oil, a mixed variety of green and olive leaf teas that include additions such as lemon myrtle, ginger, turmeric and chai. Alpaca wool is also home-spun and available for sale. Obi Obi Valley is on the Western side of the Blackall Range on the way to Kenilworth. Barry and Alexina’s vision is to have a productive farm that is sustainable, organic and uses best farming practices. This is a long term adventure and one that the Johnsons want to share.
