The UC Extension Office in Sonoma County has a wealth of information for olive growers, both commercial and residential. The Olives page on their website features articles about pest and disease management, harvest methods, oil yield and milling, as well as resources and classes for California olive oil producers, current issues for the industry and their quarterly newsletter, First Press.

The UC Davis Olive Center is another link between our university system's research and the California olive industry. Their website features reports and resources pertinent to California olive growers.

The Olive Oil Commission of California (OOCC) supports farmers by conducting research on sustainable crop growth, developing and enforcing purity and quality standards, verifying olive oil quality through mandatory sampling and third-party analysis, and promoting accurate labels for California olive oil to help lessen consumer confusion. It runs with general oversight from the California Department of Food and Agriculture and is funded by the state’s olive oil farmers.
