The harvest is near!

We are a family run olive farm based in Monterey County, California, dedicated to producing delicious, healthy, and local extra virgin olive oils and vinegars to satisfy a wide range of tastes. We employ eco-friendly and sustainable growing practices with our olive trees to produce the best quality oil possible. Our olives are hand picked and immediately cold pressed locally, yielding high quality extra virgin olive oil, which we bottle in small batches throughout the year to ensure freshness. Our award winning oils retail in many specialty stores in and around the Bay Area, and we regularly host tastings and sales events to introduce our community to our products, and to give tips on recipes and uses for olive oil. Please enjoy our oils and vinegars - from our home to yours.
