Desert Olive Farms grows and processes our olives locally to produce only the freshest, finest quality products.
Olives love heat and thrive under stress. So when the legendary farmer, the late John Benson mentioned the need to identify water-saving alternatives for the Imperial Valley, the idea to plant production olives in the valley was born. After just 5 years of growth, 250 acres of the toughest dirt in the Benson family rotation produced award winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Cowboy Clyde and Grace begun this adventure over three years ago. After starting numerous businesses in Arizona, Clyde thought their next endevour laid in the land of their roots in Brawley, CA. They decided on a boutique olive oil business called Desert Olive Farms. DOF is a boutique producer of high quality extra virgin olive oil located along the Mexican border, on the southern edge of California's Sonoran Desert. Our extra virgin olive oils are milled with care and bottled by hand in Brawley, California. The family sells our extensive line of oils and vinegars at the Desert Olive Farms store, located in Yuma, Arizona, at numerous retailers in San Diego, Yuma, and the Imperial Valley, farmer's markets throughout Southern California, and here on its website.
