Dry Creek Olive Company

For over 100 years, Dry Creek Valley's low rolling hills and dry, hot summers have quietly nourished olive trees. Now, our arborists, growers, and master oil blenders are rejuvenating these "heritage" orchards, and carefully planting varieties to complement them. Rooted in tradition as rich and fertile as the soil, our artisan approach produces only the very finest extra virgin olive oils.
We believe that excellent oil begins in the orchard. To produce the highest-quality fruit and oils, we take great care in selecting the best sites for growing, choose the finest varietals, and provide attentive long-term management. Our home ranch is no exception. With an olive growing history dating back to the mid-1800′s, our home orchards consist of a wide range of different olive varietals as well as planting styles. Touring the ranch, you can see traditional orchards, high-density and super-high density plantings that make up varietals from Spain, Italy, France, Greece and our own native California. From 150 year old heritage trees right down to our 7 year old high-density trellised plantings, we are helping to ensure the highest quality oil with the highest quality trees. We imported an entire Italian mill piece by piece from Gruppo Pieralisi, who have manufactured olive mills in Italy since 1888. But this was just the first phase of our unique process. Pieralisi helped us design a custom system that incorporates a traditional granite mill and a state of the art hammer mill – giving us the time-honored tradition of stone milling and the modern conveniences of automated technology. By combining two pressing techniques into one mill, we can select which mill to use based on olive varietal, ripeness, and desired oil style.

We have a private mill

We offer a limited amount of custom milling services for other olive growers and producers. Our minimum weight for an individual run using our Hammer mill is 700 lbs. For the stone mill, we require a minimum of one ton of olives, as it is less efficient at smaller capacities than the Hammer mill. If you wish to have your olives milled using our stone mill, please confirm this at the time of booking, and indicate that on your contract as well.

Name Tim and Mary Louise Bucher
Company Dry Creek Olive Company
Passion can be a funny thing. If you’re lucky, it finds you early and never lets go. As a child at the age of eight I fell in love with tractors. Not toy tractors, but the real tractors that were in use on my parents’ dairy farm. As soon as I could reach the pedal, I was driving them and soon thereafter, I was repairing them. When I was a young boy, my father would bring me to Dry Creek Valley where we used to graze cattle in the fertile pastures. I would tell my father as we would check on the cattle, that one day I wanted to live in Dry Creek Valley. I knew then, even at a very young age, that it was the most beautiful and bountiful valley I had ever seen. My passion for tractors led to a fascination with mechanics and technology that is still with me today. But after years in the technology industry, my deep-rooted love for tractors and Dry Creek Valley brought me and my family back to Sonoma County to what we now call Trattore Farms.
