We have approximately 14,000 olive trees planted on 50 acres and will be expanding another 20 acres in 2017. For a number of years we experiment with different olive cultivars to see how they would acclimate to our soil profile and weather. Since nothing ever seems to go by the book, we are constantly researching ideas and techniques to employ in our orchard for 'best practices' and we routinely work in partnership with Texas universities on various research projects. These relationships continue to be mutually beneficial and we've met a lot of fantastic people in the process.
I have to say, working at the Orchard is more than a job. It is the combination of our team skills, knowledge, passion and talents that create who we are in the Texas olive oil industry. At Lone Star Olive Ranch, our team works together to achieve an environment where going to work is more than just a job, but rather a place where we create Texas Artistry in Agriculture. The field is our canvas – a place of exploration, creativity and professional growth. We are inspired by what we do and are motivated to achieve extraordinary things. A lesson I have learned along this path . . . do what you love.
As we continue to grow, we’re keeping an eye on the needs of our customers. Keep coming back, checking in and staying connected. We are dedicated to achieving excellence and welcome hearing from you. Email us or call us! Let us know what you would like to see from Lone Star Olive Ranch.
