Our organic olive oil is heritage Mission and boasts a very high polyphenol content and is grown in the natural farming method. This means that the trees are spaced far apart and are allowed to grow with only the sun and rain they receive naturally. This tough-love approach to farming makes for stronger trees that produce significantly higher quality oil with bioactive polyphenols that are among the highest in the world.
Withstanding fire, drought, and disease, the olive tree is a symbol of health, friendship and peace around the world. The story of the olive in America began when Spanish missions were established in California (1769 to 1835) and large olive groves and fruit orchards were planted. The Mission Olive, as it's known today, continues to be farmed on a limited scale by conscientious ranchers in northern California who work to preserve this special variety of olive.
