Audrey and Gregg hatched the whole crazy olive farm idea during a bicycle-touring vacation in Tuscany. While eating at local restaurants, they discovered intensely flavorful and grassy olive oil, unlike anything they had tasted in the U.S., so why not produce their own high quality extra virgin olive oil back home in California?
In 2004 they relocated from Los Angeles to the beautiful central coast town of Paso Robles and planted their first 835 Tuscan olive trees a year later. Audrey and Gregg designed and built the straw bale farm building while learning more about milling and processing olives into high quality oil. In 2010 Kiler Ridge Olive Farm began producing and selling estate grown, certified extra virgin olive oil.
