Listen to the iHeartMedia interview with local olive farmer Lisa Ternero.
So much has been said about olive oil. Especially lately.
Are all olive oils created equally? The answer is NO.
A good Extra Virgin Olive oil is similar to a good wine. Well, not exactly but different types of olives have different flavors much like grapes. Unlike wine, olive oil does not get better with time. I know it can look beautiful sitting on your counter next to your stove but the light will hurt the oil. You should really keep it in a dark cabinet and away from heat.
Our harvest for table olives start mid September and then as the fruit matures we usually start harvest for oil mid October. Once our olives are harvested for oil they are immediately taken to the mill to be pressed. Our oil is Cold pressed and we never exceed 21C at any part of our process. We press our olives only once to assure the best quality.
