"Our oils are not the same year over year, that's the big industry's job. We only answer to Mother Nature."
Abandoned Grove specializes in welcoming and working with the differences and nuances of each olive harvest.
We produce limited quantities of early harvest extra virgin olive oils, derived from groves that once abandoned, have been restored to their former glory.
No matter the producer, label or gold medal awards, even the “best” oils will flatten and become rancid with time. (Yes, even ours.)
Which is why Abandoned Grove specializes in “provenienza” - we manage every step of the process (the harvest, the milling, the testing, the storage and the transport) to bring in the freshest and highest quality new harvest oils, in their best possible state, in the shortest amount of time, and directly to your table.
We do not undercut labour, nor take shortcuts in production, testing or transport expenses. Yes, it is expensive, but we have been doing it this way since day one, and frankly, there is no other way.
Passionate about the people and stories behind great olive oils, Abandoned Grove will also champion and introduce to you the next wave of influential producers through a collaboration or a special release.
“Abandoned Grove vouches for quality over quantity, flavor and unparalleled freshness, we are in the awareness, joy, and wellness business. One taste, one dish, and one meal at a time. We are excited to be writing the new playbook on olive oil."
