Groves 41.jpg

Located in the rolling hills of California’s Central Coast, The Groves
on 41 produces award winning olive oils & is home to the Barn on 41
private event center and vacation cottage. 
The Groves on 41 was born in 2010 to a mother and daughter duo, Karen and Jennifer, as a way to learn more about this specialty crop, and share it with their fellow foodies and friends. With the first trees planted in 2011, Groves on 41 holds olive oil tastings, special events, olive oil making classes, and even accommodations to stay amongst the trees. They can't wait to get their hands dirty with you!

Situated on over 140 acres of rolling hills along the central coast, the slice of heaven known as the Pasolivo Ranch, was originally owned by legendary Hollywood director and producer King Vidor, who called this place Willow Creek Ranch.  Purchased in 2012 by the Dirk family who fell in love with the magic of this place, Pasolivo still embraces the wild beauty that brought King Vidor here.  Blessed by a combination of temperate Coastal California weather and rich, fertile soil, we have been producing award-winning California olive oil and welcoming visitors to our orchards and olive oil tasting room for over a decade. The splendor and tranquility of the ranch are embraced by our staff, who are dedicated to providing visitors with a warm, educational experience and hospitality that is second to none.
