Free Lectures

Free lecture with special guests on topics ranging from olive oil to health.

Eatery

Food made in-house using olives, from pizza and soups to olive oil cakes and more!

Why COOC?

One of the best ways to know you’re getting an actual EVOO from a trusted source is to look for the COOC logo, which means that it’s been tested and practices approved of by the California Olive Oil Council, a label you can trust to find a pure olive oil that has been processed in a natural and organic way. You should also be able to find a harvest date so you know how fresh the olive oil actually is.

Taste different varieties and learn about the health benefits! Buy parking below.
