Our Story

A collage of only some of the hard working people who help make California Olive Ranch extra virgin olive oil

Farming olives since 1998

We’re California farmers with a strong connection to the land. For over 20 years we’ve been proudly offering high-quality extra virgin olive oil to the American consumer.

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 while using sustainable production methods every step of the way. In 2016, we started developing long-term relationships with top-notch olive farmers across the globe. We proudly partner with the best extra virgin olive oil producers in Chile, Argentina and Portugal. Our partners share our values of sustainable farming practices, premium production methods and impeccable storage. All of our extra virgin olive oils are certified by Applied Sensory. Additionally, our 100% California Everyday and California Reserve Collection are both certified extra virgin olive oil by Applied Sensory and verified by the Olive Oil Commission of California, which maintains the highest standards in the world.

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.



We’re transforming the olive oil industry and showing that when it comes to purity and quality, not all olive oils are created equal. We do it by growing on California ranches, finding innovative ways to plant, grow and harvest olives, sourcing high-quality extra virgin olive oils from premium producers around the world and encouraging standards across the olive oil industry.


We love what we do – and how we do it– from the care we put into creating and blending our extra virgin olive oil to the kindness we show our customers, consumers employees and farm families. Our passion pushes us to continually extend an olive branch to our partners and approach our business with transparency.
