We Olive Flagstaff!
We are a family of gardeners, and we really love good fresh food. Every spring our family plants an ambitious garden, hoping that the late frosts, elk, and the midsummer hailstorms typical of Flagstaff will spare us a few heirloom tomatoes and other culinary delights. Only the best olive oil can touch those precious handfuls of veggies we work so hard for!
We love our beautiful mountain town and are lucky to have countless sweet memories with friends and family here. Over the years, through our involvement with community nonprofits and school organizations, we recognized a need for healthy, local fundraising ideas. Olive oil fit our criteria, and it so happened that in our search for excellent olive oil (which we found in the wine country of California) we stumbled upon the source for the most delicious balsamic vinegar. It was perfectly natural to put it all together.
It was a modest start when the kids were little, bottling in commissary kitchens and bringing our olive oil and balsamics to events and fundraisers in our community. Demand for our products grew, and by 2013 it was time to open a store. We found the perfect spot for a taproom, right next to the university.
Our dancing olive tree logo reflects our family’s joie de vivre and appreciation for all that grows and gives back. Our long list of donations and fundraisers is something we take pride in, and we continue our philanthropic efforts with donations to charity events and special in-store fundraising soirees.
It is our genuine hope that whether you are ordering online or visiting us in our taproom, you have an enjoyable experience that results in the creation of your own delicious, memorable meals.
