Sicilian Spiced Olives
After nearly 30 years of farming McEvoy Ranch orchards, they continue to be enamored with all things olives. Their Sicilian Spiced Olives are a medley of Sevillano, Lucques, Kalamon, Frantoio, Manzanilla, Mission, and Redding Picholine varieties. This combination of olives plus a spicy Sicilian pepper kick with a touch of anise make this the perfect appetizer straight from the jar. You can toss it on pasta with roasted garlic and chopped tomatoes for dinner and pair it with a glass of Sangiovese.
The McEvoy Ranch Story
A renegade approach and a love of the land inspired our Founder Nan McEvoy to purchase this 550-acre sprawling ranch in West Marin County in 1990. Inspired by her love of Tuscan olive oil, Nan engaged Dr. Maurizio Castelli, a leading authority on agriculture, to recommend the best olive varieties for our unique setting. Fast-forward twenty years and McEvoy Ranch is one of the preeminent leaders in certified organic, extra virgin olive oil. A favorite of chefs – both at home and in restaurants that favor the farm-to-table approach.
