Karen & I moved up the Central Coast of California after many years of visits and a passionate study of the extra virgin olive oil industry and emerging artisan producers in the region. The farming experience has been a tremendous learning curve and a source of continued discussions and even laughter about the whole process. Our trees have won over our hearts and were excited about the upcoming growing season. We are members of the COOC, SLO Farm Bureau, Templeton Chamber of Commerce, and the Central Coast Olive Growers.
