Welcome to The Zesty Moose!
Our Olive Oils
Our olives are grown, milled and harvested directly from an Estate with over 500 acres of olive trees in Northern California. There are 17 different single varietals of olives grown here alone making this producer the most awarded Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the country. The past decade has seen an accelerated interest in Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). The demand in the US has doubled, and today 95% of America’s olive oil supply is imported; and only 5% are being produced and consumed in the United States. Grade standards, labeling and compliance for olive oil authenticity and quality is inconsistent from country to country. It typically takes 3 Months for olive oil to arrive to the U.S. from Italy, Spain or Greece (the world’s major importers of olive oil). It is not uncommon for the bottles to sit on a shelf for weeks or even months thereafter. Discerning the truth has not been an easy path for food lovers to navigate. All of our oils are certified by the Olive Oil Commission of California.
