Olives make an incredibly versatile and delectable addition to a salad, sandwich or pizza. Olives come in an assortment of colours and flavours from Spanish Queen or Manzanilla olives to Cerignola black olives from Apulia in Italy; most olives sold commercially are sold either brined or filled with capers, anchovies or peppers for optimal freshness.

Early Life and Education

Many of us associate olives with Thanksgiving dinner, but did you know they’re actually fruits? Olives originated in Asia Minor before making their way into ancient Greek cuisine as an appetizer and ingredient. Since then, olives have been used in religious ceremonies; for instance they’re included as an ingredient of chrism holy oil used by Christians churches.

Early olive trees were wild shrub-like “feral” varieties that eventually evolved into the modern olive tree we see today. As an olive grows, its colors gradually transform from green to light brown, then reddish purple, before finally dark black as it matures and eventually turns black – with each hue often representing its level of maturity and thus acting as an indicator for when its harvest has arrived.

Professional Career

Olive oil producers specialize in cultivating olive trees, harvesting them and then taking them directly to a mill where every step of production can be monitored, from creating blends to monitoring each step in between. Costco chose CHO as their bulk olive oil provider because they oversee every stage of the production process from beginning to end.

Professional olive oil experts can become very technical when discussing olive oils (similar to wine professionals). But it’s essential to remember that bottles bearing an unknown harvest date could have come from as far back as 2021!

EC21 is an excellent online marketplace that connects buyers and sellers, but their signup procedure can be cumbersome, making organic product ranking challenging. Tradewheel offers another easier alternative that connects you with thousands of genuine olive buyers across the globe.

Achievement and Honors

Woodpecker Trail Olive Farm’s welcoming sign proclaims, “World’s Best Olive Oil,” and their award-winning product backs this up.

This ultra premium extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is hand-pressed using only olives from Koroneiki variety centenarian olive trees located on Crete in Greece and then packaged and labeled carefully under strict quality control conditions in limited quantities.

Traditional ideas of olive farming in America tend to associate it with Spain and Italy; but one Georgia farm is giving their Italian and Spanish counterparts a run for their money, winning some impressive awards along the way. We visited Curtis and Tracy Poling of Woodpecker Trail Olive Farm in Tattnall County to gain more insight into their story and award-winning product.

Personal Life

Olives have an indefinite shelf life; from sparkling in brine on your snack bowl to adding an irresistibly salty bite to a charcuterie board or pizza, but how can you tell when they should be discarded?

Keep a keen eye on their appearance and scent to detect when olives have gone bad. A jar that has gone off will have an off-putting smell, its colors have started to change and its structure may have begun to weaken or shrink; their wrinkles and shriveles may have also begun to appear.

Liquid-packed olives (those packaged in oil or brine) typically last two years when unopened; however, please keep in mind that dates on canned olive jars do not necessarily indicate food safety – rather they provide an estimate of when their peak quality should arrive.

Net Worth

Olive oils serve two essential roles in the kitchen: both as cooking ingredients that withstand high heat, and finishing touches for dishes or salads. But it takes a special kind of producer to create olive oils capable of performing both tasks brilliantly.

Greg Kelley, co-founder of California Olive Ranch, seeks to disrupt the olive oil industry with a meticulous approach that draws from his tech startup experience in Silicon Valley as well as stringent chemical standards. According to him, many mainstream sellers defraud customers by selling adulterated or rancid-tasting oil.

When purchasing uncured olives from Spain or Greece, look for plump and juicy Queen or Manzanilla olives; smaller black olives with a purple hue such as Kalamata olives from Greece; those stuffed and allowed to ripen more before being packaged – which have the best flavour compared to ink-black tinned brined varieties; ink black varieties will taste inferior!
