Olinda Ridge Olive Company

Olinda Ridge Olive Company handcrafts the healthiest, award-winning extra virgin olive oil in California. We use natural and sustainable farming methods and a small batch-crafted process to ensure that our extra virgin olive oils have superb flavor, are of the freshest and highest quality, and maximize health benefits.

Our Passion for Quality: We are a small family-owned and operated producer of olive oil. Our company is named after both the town and road where we first started out. Olinda, located in Shasta County, contains some of the most northerly located commercial olive groves in California. In total, we own and manage several organic certified orchards in Northern California (Shasta and Butte counties) totaling over 130 acres and 9000 trees. More than 100 years old, our olive trees are primarily of the mission and manzanillo varietals. In addition, we also press olives from local ranches that follow sustainable agriculture practices.

We take pride and care in every step of the olive oil making process, from handpicking the olives to bottling the oil. First we practice organic and sustainable farming methods to produce the freshest, healthiest olives. We then hand pick the olives straight from our groves, minimizing leaves, dirt and damage. The olives are picked and pressed immediately to preserve freshness. The olive oil is then stored in stainless steel tanks in cool temperatures. We only bottle when we need to fulfill orders or send product to the markets. Since our products are made in California, it means shorter transport times within the domestic United States and, therefore, fresher products to the consumer.

We are California Healthy! Due to the careful harvesting and processing of the olives, our extra virgin olive oils test at an acidity rate of .3% or less -- much lower than the .8% requirement. Our special method also gives our olive oil a high polyphenol count, which maximizes anti-oxidants and their associated health benefits. The result: the highest quality, certified extra virgin olive oil with superb taste and great nutritional value.

Award Winning: Olinda Ridge extra virgin olives oils have been recognized by the experts as among the very best as we continue to win major awards in international olive oil competitions. Some of our most recent gold medals were awarded in the Olive Oils of the World Competition (L.A. County Fair) and Las Vegas International Restaurant Show.

Guaranteed Natural: Olinda Ridge Olive Company is a member of the California Olive Oil Council (COOC), an organization providing a Seal Certification program guaranteeing fresh, quality extra virgin olive oils made in California. Our organic products are certified by California Certified Organic Farmers and are USDA-approved organic.
