Three generations of the Bamford family are proud to produce award-winning extra virgin olive oil in the scenic agricultural heartland of Butte County. The Mission olive groves that they tend, descended from Old World stock that Franciscan missionaries established alongside the Alta California missions, have been nourished by Table Mountain's mineral-rich volcanic soils, abundant sun, and ephemeral streams for more than a century, yielding a rich terroir. Their Tasting Room also offers a seasonal selection of olive oils co-pressed with fresh fruits and herbs, craft balsamic vinegars, savory salts, dried herbs and spices, local raw honey and humanely raised pastured beef.
Tours of their historic Mission olive groves are currently available by appointment only, for groups of 4-12 people, at a very modest charge. Please email email@example.com to arrange a visit, educational tour and al fresco tasting with an olive estate manager. If you would like to arrange a tour for a larger group or classroom, please contact them well in advance of your intended visit, and they will do everything they can to meet your needs.
