There is more to our farm than just great olives.
Creating the right environment to farm olives is one thing – knowing your family is not the only one who lives off the farm means you are on the right track.
"I saw some bucolic hills south of Oroville, with olive groves and ranchettes, that I'd never seen before. I was reminded that there are few things more peaceful and beautiful than driving the back roads...When our bus crested a hill south of Oroville and came upon (Lodestar Farms), I gasped. Others did, too. There was a beautiful house, surrounded by old olive trees." - David Little, editor, Chico Enterprise Record; November 18, 2001
