Learn about the process of harvesting and making California Olive oil at Bozzano Farms.
The Bozzano family has a history of farming in California dating back more than 4 generations. It began in Italy, where the small family farm produced olives and olive oil for the community. When 15-year-old Lino Bozzano immigrated to Stockton, CA, he brought that tradition with him. He planted tomatoes, founding what would in time become the American branch of the Bozzano family farm. In later years, the Bozzano family replaced their tomato crop with cherries, and in January 2007 the focus switched again to olives and olive oil. In four generations the Bozzano farm has come full circle, from a small olive farm in Italy to the expansive olive ranch it is today.
Groups are welcome during harvest (Oct/Nov/Dec).
