Extra Virgin Olive Oil Facts

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is made by crushing olives and extracting the juice, that’s it! No Chemicals are used for extraction of oil nor is industrial refining a part of the process; unlike other available cooking oils!

Extra virgin is the highest quality and most expensive olive oil classification. A quality EVOO has no defects and a flavor of fresh olives.

The oil is made entirely by mechanical methods without the use of any solvents. The production takes place in temperatures that will not degrade the oil.

Art March

La Terra is involved in the monthly Art March, which falls on the first Friday of every month.  Joe and Linda enjoy opening the shop doors and welcoming guests into La Terra to enjoy some oil and vinegar tastings, foods created with the shop products and of course something to sip; a glass of wine, warm apple cider, juice or water.

During these open house “Sip N Shop” evenings there will always be a product or two at a great price!
