Farmland

187 acres on the outskirts of Sacramento, about 82 miles to San Francisco

About

In 1989, the Bariani family moved to Sacramento from northern Italy. To produce olive oil for personal use, Angelo built his own olive press and crusher. Soon thereafter, the family started their own olive oil company. The Bariani family is committed to producing raw, authentic extra virgin olive oil. All of the olives, Mission and Manzanillo varieties, are grown without the use of synthetic chemicals. To maintain fertility, the Barianis mulch and incorporate olive paste and trimmings into the soil. All oil is pressed and bottled at the farm.

Fun Fact

The Barianis conserve energy by burning leftover olive paste in a special furnace that provides heat and hot water.
