Santa Barbara Olive Company
Santa Barbara Family Tradition Since 1850.
California commercial olive farming first took root in 1851 when John Emile Goux planted an olive orchard in Santa Barbara County. Now over 150 years later, Mr. Goux's Great, Great Grandson Craig Makela and his wife, Cindy, harvest more than 5,000 olive trees on 100 acres on the beautiful coast of Santa Barbara County.
Craig and Cindy, in step with the family tradition, founded Santa Barbara Olive Co. with a mission of expanding the possibilities of the olive in North America. With perseverance and dedication, they've succeeded. Santa Barbara Olive Co. now boasts more specialty olives than any other olive company, and employs various curing and brining methods in producing natural and distinctly delicious olives.
Santa Barbara Olive Company.
The attention paid to each olive throughout its harvest assures the high-quality and unique taste of the Santa Barbara Olive Co. olive. Our olive selection process demands that each olive is perfect in shape, color and size and we use only the top 10% of any particular orchard at any time. Expect more from an olive? So do we.
