We are lucky to farm such gorgeous land. Olives are very resilient, drought tolerant trees. California is in the midst of a terrible drought, but when olive trees are put under stress, they tend to produce more complex flavors. We like focusing on the positive aspects of the complexity of farming at Scout. #extravirgin #extravirginoliveoil #scoutoliveoil #evoo #oliveoil #cagrown #californiafarming
This is what an Arbequina olive tree looks like when it is ready to be harvested. The outside of the fruit will start to turn red and the inside will be at its highest oil content. You want to make sure that the fruit contains red, green, and dark red berries to maximize the flavor. Harvesting olives is an art, much like grape harvesting - we even use the same mechanical harvesters. #harvest2015 #scoutoliveoil #evoo #COOC #extravirginoliveoil #oliveoil #cagrown #californiafarming #extravirgin
We are excited to be up and running! We can’t wait to share our vision and our premium extra virgin olive oil with all of you!
