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!


Kiler Ridge is a family owned and operated farm producing the highest quality of California extra virgin olive oil.

As a small oil producer, they hand pick, mill, rack, bottle, and label everything themselves ~ ensuring the freshest olive oil possible!  With help from family and friends, they have been able to produce excellent olive oil each year while sharing their passion for olive oil with the public.

The Kiler Ridge farm currently maintains 2,700 olive trees that produce exquisitely verdant and flavorful extra virgin olive oil.  They grow seven different varieties of Italian olive trees on 15 acres of land, and are eco-friendly in all their farming and milling practices. "We use our olive pomace (leftover organic matter from milling) as a natural fertilizer for our orchards and our unused oil for soaps and body balm."
