In 2010 Walter & Sharon bought a home on two acres in Sonoma county, CA, that had six beautiful Italian olive trees on it.
The following year, one of our oldest trees had so many olives on it, we decided to harvest the olives and take them to the local community milling. After tasting that first batch of fresh local milled Real EVOO we were hooked, and a passion was created.
We then decided to plant another 75 trees and start our own small batch olive oil company, we planted Arbequina and a few Italian varietals.
We network with folks who love fresh California EVOO. On our journey we met several friends who have their own olives orchards, but did not have a need for a large amount of olives or oil.
. From there we have become business partners with whom we harvest their trees and are able to produce different varieties of EVOO. We have developed a co-op; where we harvest our friends/partners olive trees along with our own trees.
Our trees are grown pesticide free, hand harvested and cold pressed to produce the freshest award winning oil possible. We compete in the Sonoma County Harvest fair and have won a double gold for our Arbequina, a Bronze for our Frantoio, and our Tuscan Blend won a silver and the Leccino won a bronze. We are proud members of the COOC- California Olive Oil Counsel.
