Bariani Olive Oil

People

Angelo and Santa Bariani and their sons Sebastian, Enrico, and Emanuele; the fourth son, Luigi, helps for two months out of the year during peak pressing season.

Farmland

187 acres on the outskirts of Sacramento, about 82 miles from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

Farm History

The Bariani family moved to Sacramento in 1989 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 (both Mission and Manzanillo varieties) are grown without the use of synthetic chemicals. To maintain soil fertility, the Barianis mulch and incorporate olive paste and trimmings into the soil. All oil is pressed and bottled at the farm.
