Introducing our Mission Extra Virgin Olive Oil…

The Mission Olive is a variety unique to the US, first brought over by Franciscan missionaries in the late 18th century. When the original Mission trees were brought over, they suffered after the secularization of the missions. New trees were cultivated from cuttings of the originals, creating the distinct Mission trees we know and love today! The Mission olive is very versatile; it is fantastic for oil production and the curing of table olives. The fruit produced by Mission olive trees are small in size and has one of the lowest flesh-to-pit ratios. The Mission oil we produce is delightfully delicate with fresh green notes and a rich, round mouth feel. Mission olive oil is fantastic for finishing, as dipping oil and is often used as a substitute for butter! Enjoy!
