First Texas Olive Oil Co. is located on The Bella Vista Ranch in the Texas Hill Country town of Wimberley. Each Fall we harvest and mill our estate-grown olives on a modern Italian olive press to create the highest quality oil.
The estate grown olive varieties we selected for our Frate Sole Extra Virgin Olive Oil are predominantly Tuscan varieties –- Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino. Our other plantings are also Italians --Taggiasca from Liguria and Coratina from Puglia -- as well as some olives of Spanish and French origin, including Arbequina, Boutellian, Aglandau and Grossane. The fruit is hand-picked and cold-processed.
Georgia Olive Farms conducted the first olive harvest east of the Mississippi, near Lakeland, Georgia, in 2011 and established the first commercial olive mill east of the Mississippi in 2013. GOF sells extra virgin olive oil, offers turnkey olive orchard installation and management and custom harvesting.
