Purchasing Olive Trees

This entry was posted on February 3, 2012 by McEvoy Ranch.

Our extra virgin olive oil is comprised of six Italian olives each grown for its part in our carefully blended annual release, the Traditional blend. Each varietal plays a role in our disctinct Tuscan-style oil; Frantoio and Leccino comprise 85% of the the blend, giving the oil its green fruit notes and pungent characteristics, while the Maurino, Pendolino, Leccio del Corno and Coratina give the oil balance and depth. In addition to these six varietals, our Nursery team grows over 40 other olive cultivars at the ranch, all grown specifically to yield superior olive oil and table olives. Our trees are well-suited to large-scale orchard plantings or singly-placed landscape focal trees, and they're available wholesale directly from the ranch with a $1000 minimum tree purchase, in our San Francisco Ferry Building shop or throughout the Bay Area through our retailer partners listed below: Bay Flora - 1563 Solano Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94707 Cottage Gardens of Petaluma - 3995 Emerald Drive, Petaluma, CA 94952; 707-778-8025 Four Winds Growers - Online retailer only, distributes throughout California; 877-449-4637 Geyserville Olive Tree Company - 21699 Geyserville Avenue, Geyserville, CA 95441 Harmony Farm Supply & Nursery - 3244 Gravenstein Highway North, Sebastopol, CA 95472; 707-433-8904 Healdsburg Nursery - 12950 Old Redwood Hwy, Healdsburg, CA 95448; 707-433-8904 O'Donnell's Nursery - 1700 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Fairfax, CA 95441; 415-453-0372 Persimmons Garden Gallery - 1055 Redway Drive, Redway, CA 95560; 707-923-2748 Detailed descriptions of each of our nursery's cultivars can be seen on our Olive Tree Varietals pageand to check what trees are currently in stock, click here.
