EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL (EVOO)

Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil. The olives are cold pressed/extracted only once without using chemicals or heat. EVOO has a superior taste, low acidity (less than 0.8%), and retains the most natural flavors, nutrients, and health benefits.

 ORGANIC / EUROPEAN BIO LABEL

Our olive oil is certified organic by the European Union (EU).  This signifies that our extra virgin olive oil meets the EU's stringent organic farming and production standards. We produce our olive oil in an environmentally friendly manner. We employ sustainable practices without the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, and GMOs.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) offers numerous health benefits, including:

·             Heart Health: Rich in monounsaturated fats, EVOO helps reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) levels and increase good cholesterol (HDL), lowering the risk of heart disease.

·             Antioxidant Properties: EVOO contains antioxidants like polyphenols, which protect cells from damage and reduce inflammation.

·             Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Compounds like oleocanthal in EVOO have anti-inflammatory properties similar to those of ibuprofen.

BOUTIQUE PRODUCER

Our organic extra virgin olive oil is produced using our own olives. We handpick our olives and extract the oil within hours of plucking them from the tree. This ensures the freshest, healthiest, most flavorful olive oil. We follow our olives from the tree to the bottle, so you'll know exactly what's in each and every bottle.
