  • Have you ever met someone completely passionate about their work that they make you question your work? Richard is the Olive oil man! We planned a trip to see his farm on the last day of our trip. I sadly can't drink right now, so what else is there to do outside of family activities and wineries? Olive oil farming! It was a great way to end our time on the central coast. Richard started by telling us about his story of becoming the Olive oil man. He helped us learn about Olive trees (we had brought a branch from our tree), the olives themselves, and the milling process. He brought us into his tasting room, and we tried various oils and a vinegar, as wells as a few flavor pairings. We really have a new appreciation for not only olives, Olive oils, and farming, but Richard and smaller, non-commercial farmers. Every bottle is a labor of love crafted by him, his wife, and even his dog. The visit felt like we had visited an uncle, and we did buy oils (he definitely doesn't ask you to, but after tasting then and knowing the process, you definitely want to.) We were going to send some as gifts, but it's hard to appreciate something as much unless you've experienced it. We experienced the San Miguel Olive Farm and we're better for it. Thanks again Richard! We definitely will try to come up one October to experience the harvesting to complete the journey.
  • This place is a MUST VISIT if you are in the Paso Robles area. We had a lovely tour of this beautiful olive farm. It was followed by a really fun and unique tasting experience with olive oil and vinaigrette pairings. Richard, the owner, has a pretty inspiring story of his own journey that he shares in a rather humorous manner. However, his award winning oils are no laughing matter. We bought some and we are planning another tour to get some more.
