Golden Olive

Golden Olive

“The olive tree is surely the richest gift of heaven.”
— Thomas Jefferson

Olive oils are unique and distinct, each brand of olive oil having its own character, as determined by many factors, like those unique flavor differences found in fine wines. All are similar, however, with the health benefits they bring. Olive oil consumption is said to lower blood pressure, prevent dandruff, prevent wrinkles, prevent dry skin and acne, strengthen nails and even stop muscle aching.

Our third president was quite the foodie and fell in love with olive oil. He began to import olive trees during the Revolutionary War period in order to add this useful plant to our culture. But nothing compares to the taste of pure natural olive oil from its native soils.

We are fortunate to have an exclusive supply of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from a small family in Sicily. The Diliberto Family prides itself in growing the finest olive trees naturally and with decades of experience, harvest their olives at just the right moment. They capture the fresh aroma and light nutty taste with the First Cold Press. It's like eating an olive right off the tree.
