About the company
Owens Creek Company
Award-winning extra virgin olive oil produced and grown in Mariposa County, California.
Attributes: All Natural
Owens Creek Company, LLC has 5,250 olive trees under cultivation on 35 acres of orchard land at Redington Ranch in Mariposa County. Bordering the golden foothills of the Sierra Mountains with beautiful Yosemite Valley lying just above, this area of California’s Central Valley has long been known for agricultural activities. The first olive trees in this area were planted by the Mission Fathers well over a century ago. Inspired by their example, Owens Creek began planting olive trees in the spring of 2005. Our first harvest was completed in the fall of 2007. At Owens Creek, the true harvest date is always printed on the label.
Today the nine separate olive varieties currently being grown by Owens Creek Company are all Italian varieties, five from Tuscany and four more from Sicily. Each variety was carefully selected for the superior quality and taste of its oil. Unlike the genetically modified high density olive varieties grown in northern California, the Tuscan and Sicilian olive trees at Redington Ranch are widely spaced and are harvested entirely by hand. The resulting fruit is milled within twenty-four hours to insure that the resulting oil has only the freshest possible fragrance and taste. Our trees receive water via a sophisticated drip irrigation system that makes economical use of the precious water drawn from water wells located on the ranch property. These wells are recharged each spring by underground streams flowing from the Sierra snowpack.
Mission and values Our olive oil is certified Extra Virgin by the California Olive Oil Council, guaranteeing the quality of our product. 98% of the olive oil available in the United States is imported (and usually mass produced), so high quality, domestically produced olive oil is much more difficult to find. At Owens Creek Company, we are hoping that you and your family will employ both of our delicious Quartetto olive oil blends in your appreciation of the best things, both culinary and musical, that life has to offer. Enjoy them in good health!
