California Olive Ranch
We believe in making great olive oil and healthy food available to everyone. We’re so passionate about the quality of our olive oil, that we grow and harvest our olives with the same care that California wine makers apply to their grapes. We press our olives within hours of picking to seal in the fresh taste.
We think you should know exactly where the olives in your olive oil come from. Our olive oil is traceable back to the California ranches where our olives are grown. We also believe that you should know how fresh your olive oil is, that’s why every bottle of our olive oil displays the harvest date.
We invite you to taste the difference!Sustainable Olive Ranches
You should know where your food comes from, who grows it and how it’s grown.
We are proud to be part of a California ranch legacy that dates back 300 years, to when the Spanish brought the first olive trees to California. By combining that time honored agrarian wisdom with the new science of sustainable growing, our ranches are able to produce America’s best tasting olive oil.
We believe that taking care of the earth’s resources is the right thing to do…and it makes better olive oil. Our ranches use resources wisely and extend the water we use through recycling and drip irrigation. We mulch tree trimmings back into the field and allow other farms to use our leftover olive pits.
California olive oil requires less energy for transportation than European imports.
