Grove Setup

Rehab a neglected grove or start a new one, we can help you get it done. Starting a grove of olives from baby trees or taking stewardship of a heritage grove can be a wondefully satisfying endeavor.


We cultivate unique olive varietals oursleves, and work with dozens of other nurseries, to get whatever you need. From a single tree to 1,000, groves to landscaping, we can get any olive tree for any place.


Pruning olive trees is a crucial part of the annual calendar. The practice of selecting which branches will form the tree for generations to come is an art form. Let our experience guide your hand.

The Importance of Pruning

We like to prune from the very inception of a grove, to slowly craft its shape, working each year to slowly build towards perfection.  Sometimes, however, we need to step into an older grove that’s long been neglected, and bring it back from the brink.

Harvesting & Milling

We can help you pick your olives, and we can mill them into olive oil for you. We work with the region's best picking crews, and can handle groves of any size. We also have the good fortune of running the Ojai Valley's only two olive mills, which gives us lots of bandwidth come milling season. We're able to accomodate any size crop, from multi-day runs of many tons, to just a bucket full from your garden. Talk to us come milling season, and we will make sure you get the most out of your olive trees.
