Okay, so we're not professional cinematographers, but we're proud of our work! Check out our video to see how we make our olive oil. You'll also get to see some of the important members of the team, not to mention some pretty cool scenery.
By the way, that's Sparta in the background when we're speaking.
Does harvest time matter?
7 reasons why it makes a big difference for producers and for consumers.
Here are our 2017-2018 chemical analysis reports. A note about the "note" column. The acronyms USDA and COOC stand for US Department of Agriculture and California Olive Oil Council, respectively. Those standards are the most stringent in the United States and among the most stringent in the world. The acidity level of 0.16% is exceptionally low and is the lowest value we've ever had for one of our main product lines.
We're excited to announce that our Original blend is now fully back in stock. Along with our Founder's Reserve, we've got a full compliment of oils ready to deliver.
The new Original blend is an amazing oil. It's got a nice balance of fruity, nutty, herbal, and savory undertones that makes it perfect for just about anything!
A couple other notes:

Well, actually it’s mostly here. Almost diametrically opposed to the previous harvest, the 2017-2018 harvest was a great one. Favorable conditions during the growing season led to some amazing yields for the harvest period. Normally, the harvest is complete by the end of January, but this year, many farmers are still finishing up their harvests now.
