The best extra virgin olive oil starts in the groves and we farm our family-owned groves in a sustainable manner, never using pesticides or weed abatement practices that could be harmful to our environment. Only exceptional groves can make exceptional extra virgin olive oil.
When you buy olive oil from us, you also buy our quality guarantee. Ever since we began ten years ago, Temecula Olive Oil Company has been family-owned and operated, committed to using only California olives to make the highest quality olive oil. On our olive ranch, we practice sustainable agriculture, growing and harvesting a wide variety of olives, which we hand press using traditional methods to produce fresh, full-flavored 100% extra virgin olive oil.
Thom Curry is certified by the International Olive Oil Council as a Master Taster and sits on the California Olive Oil Council’s Taste Panel. Our knowledge, strict standards and passionate commitment are your assurance that every California olive oil product you buy is the very best we can make.
From the start, we made a commitment to use only 100% California olive fruit of the highest quality and never use chemicals or heat treatments of any kind. On our California olive oil ranch (blessed with an ideal Mediterranean climate) we practice sustainable agriculture and grow and harvest a wide variety of olives to bring you our unique blends of California olive oils.
That’s the only way we can ensure the full, fresh, rich flavor of our pure Extra Virgin California Olive Oils year after year. With each year’s harvest you’ll discover unique qualities and distinctive flavors. And because olive oil is best consumed within a year or two of harvest, we often produce limited quantities of special California olive oils and release them first-and sometimes only-to members of our Temecula Olive Oil Club.
As a family-owned and operated business we take great pride in every California olive oil product we produce. We hope they are not only a reflection of our devotion to family, friends, food, and health, but that they also enhance your enjoyment of life.
Don’t just take our word for it. We invite you to visit our ranch and see for yourself! We run all of our farm equipment on olive oil, and power our ranch with solar energy. We have a zero-waste operation: any oil not extracted during the first pressing is used to make soaps, chocolates and other fine products. We even use the high alkaline water extracted from the olives during our pressing process to use as an all-natural, chemical-free weed control on our ranch.
