The Australian Carob Co is owned and operated by Michael and Jam Jolley, and is located in Booborowie, near Burra, South Australia. The couple dreamed of growing, harvesting, processing, and packaging the world’s most premium carobs with utmost focus on flavor excellence and quality. So almost two decades ago, the Jolleys planted their carob orchard from grafted trees on a 76-acre block of land. Today, there are approximately 6000 carob trees thriving on the property.
Established in 2000, the company today is the leading global supplier of the world’s sweetest tasting and best quality 100% ORGANIC AUSTRALIAN CAROBS.
The orchard is home to a thoughtfully-curated selection of sweet varieties of carob trees. The Jolleys take pride in ensuring each individual tree has the appropriate water requirements and correct pruning year-round. The company employs sustainable farming practices and no pesticides or insecticides are used on the trees. The carob pods are harvested in March/April and are taken directly to the manufacturing shed on site. There, they are allowed to dry naturally, ready for processing. The Australian Carob Co. uses state-of-the-art machinery to produce the products, including a sophisticated carob kibbler, a large carob roaster and a specially-designed carob mill.
