Ojai Olive Oil is a family owned and operated farm, and the oldest producer of extra virgin olive oil in the region. We are open for free tastings and shopping 6 days a week (closed Sundays), and give free guided Tours & Tastings on Wednesdays from 10am-1pm, and Saturdays from 10am-4pm. On Sundays we are at the Ojai Farmers Market in the middle of town. Our groves are certified organic, and we are one of the valley's only operating permaculture farms. In addition to award winning olive oils, we also produce an array of wonderful balsamic vinegars and olive oil based cosmetics. Our Tours & Tastings are open to all, do not require a reservation, and are free. We begin outside and discuss the history of our groves and a bit about olive oil in general. We also get into important information about selecting, storing, and cooking with olive oil, show you our mill and how the olive oil is made, and end up in the tasting room to sample all of our products. Ojai Olive Oil is proud to be one of the Ojai Valley's most popular destinations, and we look forward to seeing you at our farm :)

We had an enjoyable olive oil tasting experience. The various flavors were discribed to us and we had a fun time tasting the various choices. We ended by buying three different flavors and will also give some as gifts. We were also shown the olive oil extractors and how how they got the oil from the olive. Our only complaint... More

We visited on a Sat. without a reservation and were able to get a tour of the grove, the olive pressing room and a tasting of the local olive oils and Italian balsamic vinegars. I order both the olive oils and several of the vinegars, some flavored with fruit and, in the case of the lemon olive oil, pressed with... More

We enjoyed our free tasting. There were many delicious oils to sample. The tasting area was small but certainly manageable. Our favorites were the garlic infused and fig infused. The hosts were super friendly and accommodating. Enjoy!

We were driving from Santa Barbara to LA and decided to stop in Ojai. I looked up on TA what to do in this quaint little town and the Ojai Olive Oil Company came up. We thought, "Why not?" and proceeded to drive a little outside of town to find this little gem. Along the way we began smelling this... More

We were glad to have GPS, but once we got there, it was a lovely visit, very nice olive oil and beauty products, no hard sell. They also had a nice picnic area, would be a fun place for a picnic!

Probably not much of an issue for most of the year, but couldn't get there today due to flooding on the road. Maybe if I had a bigger car. Shame because it looks cool!

If you meditate, you must come here. I walked barefooted and felt good vibes. Nice benches available throughout.

If they're still out off bread it's probably my fault. Don't come here when you're starving! I must have inhaled 60 little bread squares, dipped in their delicious, herb infused oils and vinegars. Obnoxious, I know! The setting for a little educational background on the olive oil making process is very picturesque and the tour informational. I had to skip... More

Even on a Wednesday afternoon, the tasting room and tour was extremely crowded. There is not a whole lot of parking either. Because it was during the week, there were only two people working, which made everything unorganized and frantic. I was not a fan of the flavored olive oils but the more classic types were very good, just expensive.... More
