Our Oil...

We are a (very) small farm in Hollister, CA, producing an Italian, pasture-blended oil.  We believe what differentiates our oil from others is our harvesting process. Our olives are hand-picked, sorted, and crushed at one of the last stone mills in California, using granite stones brought over from Italy.  

Tuscan varietals:  Frantoio, Luccino, Pendolino, Maurino, and Taggiasca.  

Typically, we harvest later than most.  Earlier harvesting produces a nutrient-dense oil higher in polyphenols (peppery), while a later harvest yields a more mellow flavor. Additionally, we allow our oil to “rest” for several months instead of bottling it immediately for quick sale.  We are patient and painstaking.  It is both an art and a science to determine exactly when to harvest each year to produce an oil that is buttery but with a peppery finish, an oil high in nutrients but high in flavor, as well.  

We are the opposite of a large, commercial grow and feel that our attention to detail produces a rich, layered taste that is unique.  Bella Vista Ranch is the "Real Deal."  That's why our tagline is "Authentic"....
