  • Purity

    Our unwavering commitment to purity is evident in everything we do. From the extended distance we planted our trees to the way we hand pick the olives to first cold press we bottle immediately. 

  • Fairness

    From our fields to our shelves, fairness drives us forward. We are a woman-owned business and many of our key people are women. We promote from within and we look at every aspect of our business through the lens of fairness, including our accessible pricing for even the most premium of our products.

  • Integrity

    Integrity creates balance, especially in an organic environment and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Treating the land with respect, the fruit with utmost care, the product with pride and the people, including the customers, with honesty and love isn’t just to feel good, it is essential.
