Two brothers, Josh and Nate, fought hard to keep their 125-year-old and family owned olive orchard. After succeeding, they worked relentlessly to learn the business as well as being great stewards of Mother Earth by taking great care of their trees. This paid off, as the olives are giving back and each bottle the brothers produced has won an international award. The latest is a GOLD AWARD at the 2018 NYIOOC (largest olive oil competition in the world) for their Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Both brothers are highly committed to bringing you the very best, all 100% natural olive oils from farm to your table - all made right here in the USA.
