Georgia Olive Farms oil is a true Extra Virgin Olive Oil. From field to our own mill in less than 24 hours, our oil is collected from only the first pressing of our fruit. In early 2009, five farmers in Southeast Georgia gathered with the dream of resurrecting olive oil production in Georgia and the Southeast US. In 2011, Georgia Olive Farms harvested the first commercial crop of olives grown east of the Mississippi from their orchards near Lakeland, Georgia. Georgia Olive Farms continues to encourage and support the development of the olive oil industry in the Southeast by increasing their own orchards and supporting farmers and investors who have the same vision.
