About Texas Olive Ranch
Texas Olive Ranch 100% Pure Texas Extra Virgin Olive Oil is pressed from arbequina variety olives grown at our ranch. The arbequina variety was developed in Spain and is especially suitable for growing in the sandy loam soil of the Middle Rio Grande Valley, where the climate is very similar to southern Spain. In addition to the arbequina variety, we grow two other varieties: arbosana, also Spanish in origin; and a Greek variety, koroneiki.
The growing season in Texas is hot and the olives are ready to be harvested the first week in September. We harvest mechanically using a modified grape harvester.

Where is the Texas Olive Ranch?
Texas Olive Ranch is between Carrizo Springs and Asherton on FM 1557. You can't miss it. There's a big sign on the fence that says Texas Olive Ranch, a waving Texas flag, and 40,000 beautiful olive trees (right here!) waving in the breeze. top
