Lone Star Olive Ranch was established in 2009. We have planted olive trees at various times of the year since 2009. We have planted 23 different olive varietals (over 13,000 trees) in the 40 acre orchard and have experimented with different planting densities and irrigation systems. Our goal is to know what olive varietals and farming methodologies work best in the Southeast region of Texas. We have had our successes and our failures and we have learned A LOT from both. We work with every degree of olive (or potential olive) farmer. We have done large scale installations as well as family style orchard installations. UPDATE: We have harvested, milled and bottled our own extra virgin olive oil as well as performed these duties for various olive growers in our region. We ARE the olive people in Southeast Texas. We love what we do and love who we work with. This emerging passion of growing olives in Texas is amazing, addictive and a whole lot of fun. JOIN US! UPDATE: We have expanded the business to include the first mobile mill in the state of Texas. Our milling company is called Texas Mobile Mill and will provides state of the art milling using an Alfa Laval Mill beginning in the fall of 2015. We can mill 2 tons per hour and do it at YOUR orchard. We come to you!!
