• Since 2004 •

We opened at the farm market in Kensington, Maryland in 2004.  Since then, we've focused on one thing—offering you real, fresh hand-crafted extra virgin olive oil from California.  

For the past ten years, our unique group of olive oil producers have enabled us to deliver on that promise.  In many ways, we've grown together. 

Each of our producers is a small (in some cases, tiny) family-owned farm. They grow and press their own olives.  They do so in the foothills outside of Santa Barbara, up along the California coastline through Monterey and Santa Cruz counties, the Napa and Capay Valleys, and in the Sierra Nevada foothills west of Lake Tahoe.

We encourage you to meet themThey're making some of the best extra virgin olive oil in the world today.

We hope you'll visit one of our farm markets.  When you do, you won't go home with a bottle of olive oil filled from a steel tank.  Instead, your bottle will come sealed and labeled by the family farm that produced it. 

Only this way can you really know who pressed your oil, when they pressed it, and where they pressed it.  

In the slippery world of olive oil—without federal or even state oversight—these basic facts are essential.

While you're here, take a moment to explore our site and discover how real, fresh extra virgin olive oil is madeYou'll be a smarter consumer of olive oil. 

We hope to see you soon at one of our seven farmers markets in Maryland and DC, or at Union Market in northeast Washington.

Thanks for stopping by!
