Our Story (and we're stickin' to it)
It all started when...
In 2014, my husband and I purchased a 40-acre parcel nestled in the foothills of the Diablo Mountains in Central California. The Santa Ana Valley, or "Organic Valley" as the locals call it, hosts a myriad of organic farms and free-range cattle and poultry ranches. As 4th-generation farmers, we felt right at home, knowing our neighbors valued "slow food" as much as we did.
On this property was a sad, neglected 10-acre olive grove overgrown with weeds and thistles. Never having been nurtured, the previous owners believed that it was not able to produce fruit. The challenge was on!
We had faith in our olive grove and in our ability to farm. Careful pruning, planting a cover crop to add nutrients back into the soil, and irrigating really paid off - each year we have doubled our harvest, and we are proud to claim an exceptional tonnage-per acre yield.
The trees are happy! And now we would like to share our blessing with you. It's amazing what a little love and care did for our "Little Orchard That Could."
