We Olive was born from passion; a passion for locally sourced, healthy, delicious, artisan extra virgin olive oil! It was nearly a decade ago when we first noticed an increase in the consumer’s demand for this type of product; so, coupled with this knowledge and our own passion, the first We Olive store was opened.
Opening that first store was a dream come true for us. We had officially created a place where local growers, chefs, and guests alike could experience, learn about, and purchase the California-made olive oil we’d come to know and love. Of course, having a wonderful product isn’t the only key to success. From the very beginning we’ve been committed to exceeding our guests’ expectations in product quality, customer service, and providing an unparalleled educational & culinary experience. The combination of our educational “Olive Oil Experience” and a tasting-oriented wine bar make We Olive a unique destination for foodies everywhere.
When a guest walks through our doors, it is our goal to ignite the flame of culinary imagination within them; to instill the excitement and celebration of fresh, healthy foods made with ingredients from local artisans. It is our passion, our dedication, and the unique experience we provide that keeps guests coming back day after day.
Come explore the daily farmers’ market with huge selection of fresh produce, an assortment of gourmet goods, gifts, and garden items. Kids will love the “critter corral” petting zoo area. More than a farm, it’s a great family outing! Just north of Nipomo off Hwy. 101, 1275 N. Thompson Ave., windmillfarms.org, (805) 489-1000
