Frog Hollow Farm is moving fast to make sure customers get their hands on the freshest oil of the year. To craft Olio Nuovo each fall, they harvest their olives and quickly press them to preserve their freshness. After hand-picking the olives, they are immediately transported straight to nearby McEvoy Ranch in Petaluma, California, where they are cold-pressed into the precious Olio Nuovo.
It is called Olio Nuovo until the end of December, but the fresh taste and best health benefits can last until March. The special processing of Olio Nuovo gives it a limited shelf life. The oil is best if used within six months.
Olio Nuovo can’t be bought every day. Frog Hollow Farm bottles it only once a year in the first half of November. Of course the timing makes Olio Nuovo just right for the feasts of the holiday season, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, and is perfect for gift giving.
Frog Hollow Farm’s Olio Nuovo is available to order on their website. It is air-freighted to customers at the height of its flavor and nutritional benefits. The farm’s Olio Nuovo is packaged in a classic dark-glass bottle with the signature Frog Hollow Farm label. Quantities available are 375 and 500 ml bottles, single or in cases of 12, and in half-gallon or one-gallon jars.New Harvest First-Press Olive Oil Olio Nuovo,
