The ongoing Covid situation has affected local small businesses and many are struggling to stay open. In an effort to help those small businesses survive, we are featuring them in a segment we call #SmallBusinessShoutout brought to you by SoCal Gas Company.
Today we'd like to introduce you to Temecula Olive Oil Company!
Thom Curry is passionate about olive oil....He's a farmer and a master blender and master miller. He and his wife Nancy, and their partner Catherine founded Temecula Olive Oil Company back in 2001 and ever since, they've been delighting customers with their unique olive oil blends and olive oil based products.
Why do they do this? Well, it's easy, they have a passion for olive oil! From their website:
"If there’s one thing you should know about us, it’s this: we believe that the best California olive oil products can only come from the best ingredients. And the most important ingredient of all is passion. Our knowledge, strict standards and passionate commitment are your assurance that every Temecula Olive Oil Company product you buy is the very best we can make.
From the start, we made a commitment to use only 100% California olive fruit of the highest quality and never use chemicals or heat treatments of any kind. On our California Olive View olive oil ranch (blessed with an ideal Mediterranean climate) we practice regenerative agriculture and grow and harvest a wide variety of olives to bring you our unique blends of California olive oils.
As a family-owned and operated business we take great pride in every California olive oil product we produce. From our extra virgin olive oils to our olive oil balms for people and pets, we hope they are not only a reflection of our devotion to family, friends, food and health, but that they also enhance your enjoyment of life. Be good to yourself in "olive" the ways possible!"
