100% hand harvested olives are crushed together with locally grown Persian limes from California. Taking inspiration from the Sicilain olive oil maker who first popularized this technique, Lucero marries the two fruits, olive and lime, at the end of each season to create a special, limited amount of agrumato-style olive oil. The result is a deliciously fresh, citrus olive oil that pairs excellently with grilled white meats, fresh salsas, fruit salads, ice cream, desserts and more.

Lucero Olive Oil is based in Corning, a small Northern California community known as ÛÏOlive City" that has been home to olive trees for over a century. The company was founded in 2005 and is owned and operated by local Corning folk devoted to growing healthy trees and milling a premium selection of oils from the original century-old trees in their town, as well as several of their own estate holdings comprised of 21st century medium and high density orchards about ten minutes north of the town.
