California Olive Ranch
Founded in 1998, we were the first company to take American olive oil to a whole new level. While olives have grown in California for hundreds of years, we’ve pioneered new ways of cultivating and harvesting olives in order to make our extra virgin olive oil premium and affordable. We’ve developed our own ranches and helped family farmers throughout Northern California develop previously unusable farm acreage into olive orchards. The approach we take on growing olives uses time honored farming techniques while fully embracing modern technology; we even have apps that chart the history of each orchard. And we use sustainable production methods every step of the way. All of our extra virgin olive oils are certified extra virgin by the California Olive Oil Council (COOC). Most importantly, it’s the people who make our company great. Our founders were captivated by the spirit of the California wine movement. Decades ago nobody looked to California as a leading wine purveyor, but through hard work and ingenuity California wines are now among the best in the world. We were founded to do the same with olive oil. Our CEO made a transition to farming from the high-tech world of Silicon Valley. He became enamored with the craft of making great olive oil, and loves leading a business that is so closely rooted to the land. Fresh, great tasting extra virgin olive oil inspires everything we do at California Olive Ranch. So we’ve made it our mission to make the highest quality extra virgin olive oil accessible to as many people as possible. We’ll do it by continuing to live out our values, day after day.
