Early Harvest & Cold Pressed

About Us

Nestled in the foothills of Calaveras County, Three Ponds Olive Oil is naturally grown from Leccino, Pendolino, Maurino and Frantoio olives that are hand picked, washed and milled within hours. 

Three Ponds came about through our family's enjoyment and respect of the outdoors and wildlife.  When we had the opportunity to invest in our California dream, a forty acre open piece of land in Calaveras County, we embarked upon the adventure which would eventually turn into the Three Ponds Olive Oil Ranch.  

We were first introduced to the beautiful area in the mid 1990's through a close friend.  We had always dreamed of having our own pond and in 2002, we found a secluded piece of land with ponds and a large watershed that replenishes the ponds each winter.  After enjoying all the wildlife and open space, we wondered what we could do with all the land and decided upon farming Tuscan olives since olives were suitable for the climate, required relatively low maintenance and we could use the healthy oil in our mostly home cooked dishes.

In 2003, we began to plant Tuscan olive trees.  First we started with a few hundred trees and with each passing year more trees were added to the orchard.  We now have about five hundred trees that are being sustainably grown using a solar water pump, gravity for the drip irrigation and lots of manual labor without chemicals.  Our mission is to produce as natural, fresh and healthy Tuscan extra virgin olive oil as possible.

We hope to continue to expand our operations in the years to come so we can share our olive oil with more people!
