Welcome to Pitchouline….
We are a small family-owned and family-operated olive farm.
Our ideal location in San Diego County's De Luz valley offers us a unique climate, a distinctive terroir and a generous aquifer. The region’s Mediterranean microclimate provides our olive trees with a perfect blend of daytime heat and low nighttime temperatures.
Right from the infancy of our vision, we believed that our olive oil's quality began with its soil. We made a commitment never to use chemicals. We prepare our own biodynamic compost and use cover crops. We also manually harvest our fruit and only produce cold pressed olive oil to guarantee optimal quality.
We are USDA Certified Organic and we practice sustainable biodynamic agriculture.
Every year, we strive to hand harvest our olives at the optimal time and to cold press them within a few hours using our on-site, state-of-the-art mill. This is how we guarantee a high level of healthy antioxidants, as well as intricate, delicate aromas.
Our olive oil is pure, raw, healthy… Enjoy!
