Our first location was the farm market in Kensington,
Maryland. We opened there in 2004. Today, we're at seven farm markets in Maryland and DC, and at Union Market in northeast Washington.
we began, we've focused on one thing—offering you real, fresh hand-crafted extra virgin olive oil from California.
Importantly, when you visit us, you won't go home with a bottle of olive oil filled from a steel tank.
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.
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 them. They're making some of the best extra virgin olive oil in the world today.
you're here, take a moment to explore our site and discover how real, fresh extra virgin
olive oil is made. You'll be a smarter consumer of olive oil.
We hope to see you soon. Thanks for stopping by!
