Rooted in Italian craftsmanship with a bold Californian approach. Our delicious early harvest olive oil is high in antioxidants and has powerful properties that are shown to reduce inflammation, improve blood pressure, provide anti-aging benefits, and much more.
OUR EXTRA VIRING OLIVE OILS

Organic Limited Edition Extra Virgin Olive OiI is a reserve oil released in the late spring with the blend changing depending on that season's harvest.

OUR AGRUMATO METHOD OLIVE OILS
We honor the traditional practices of olive oil farming and production. We employ the Agrumato Method where we simultaneously crush olives with fresh herbs and fruits together for exceptional flavor, distinct aromatics, and a crispness you can’t find elsewhere.
THE STORY BEHIND THE SKINK ON THE LABEL
Nan McEvoy’s grandchildren spent countless hours at the Ranch looking for native lizards. The most sought after and cherished was the Western Skink. Her grandchildren's love of the Ranch’s wildlife inspired Nan to put the lizard on the original olive oil labels, where they remain to this day. The skink is a celebration of the childlike wonder that the Ranch inspires in so many, and an homage to these wonderful critters that inhabit it.
A COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE
We are proud to be members of organizations that help ensure quality, provenance, and organic farming standards in the production of olive oil.
California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF): We have been farming organically since 1990 here at McEvoy Ranch. Our orchards, vineyards, and gardens are tended with organically-approved methods and materials and are inspected yearly. Our Frantoio, or olive mill, is also operated organically so that nothing but the cleanest, healthiest olive oil emerges for you and your family to enjoy.
Olive Oil Commission of California (OOCC): This CDFA-mandated organization oversees sampling and testing of olive oil for all of California’s large olive oil producers to ensure that all California olive oil is labeled properly. The OOCC’s Extra Virgin standards are some of the strictest in the world; this report shows how the OOCC has had a positive impact on the industry.
Extra Virgin Alliance (EVA): This group of like-minded olive oil producers from around the world is committed to making and selling the finest-quality olive oil possible and selling it at its freshest. Our membership in EVA is voluntary and admittance is based upon meeting strict standards for Extra Virgin production
