Harvest 2017 Recap

Here at Pasolivo, harvest is one of the most exciting times of the year! This process only happens once a year and lasts anywhere from 2-3 weeks. If you have ever wondered how olives get turned into olive oil, we have all of the equipment and tools needed for this process at the Pasolivo Ranch. All of our olives are grown, picked, and milled on-site and we do not use any chemicals or heat which is required of true extra virgin olive oil.

The first step in this process is picking the olives. Here at Pasolivo, we have over 6,500 olive trees on our property and 11 different olive varieties. Every day we have a minimum of 80 people hand-picking. Olives are moved by tractor to the mill where they are unloaded into the hopper.

Pasolivo Pumpkin Recipes

The holidays are quickly approaching and nothing is more appropriate than pumpkin everything. Whether it’s the new Pumpkin Spice Latte, carving or decorating a pumpkin, Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, Pumpkin Body Scrub, Pumpkin Candles, or everything in between, it’s hard to step outside and not see something pumpkin related. We have hopped on the “Pumpkin Everything” trend and have created three pumpkin recipes for you to enjoy.

Every recipe has a unique and creative twist and combines several Pasolivo products with your traditional pumpkin ingredients. We have adapted the recipe to include our Pasolivo olive oils, seasonings, salts, and honey. Whether it’s our Granola Pumpkin Muffins, Pasolivo Pumpkin Pie, or Roasted Pumpkin with Walnut and Feta, we hope you and your loved ones can enjoy these recipes during this holiday season.

Made using our Pasolivo Granola, our Granola Pumpkin Muffins combine our Tangerine Olive Oil with our Orange Blossom Honey and Sugar & Spice Blend (some like to call this blend our “Pumpkin Spice” blend) to add a delicious pumpkin taste. Enjoy these muffins year-round, on-the-go, or as a healthy breakfast alternative.

The 14th Annual Olive Festival in Paso Robles, California over the weekend was a success! If you weren’t able to join us, we were the Title Sponsor and provided visitors with a complimentary tasting of our products. Our booth consisted of our award-winning olive oil, olive wood products, seasonings and salts to pair with our olive oil, tea towels, vinegar’s, and bath and body products.

The Olive Festival offered more than one hundred olive-related products. Right by our booth there was live music, the weather was absolutely amazing, and it was great to meet so many people! This family-friendly event included samplings, a mobile olive oil press, olive oil ice cream, and a cooking contest.
