Extra Virgin Olive Oil

My sister Peggy Abood makes a labor of love to bring us the finest Extra Virgin Olive Oils from family producers in Lebanon. They harvest and mill on small farms, where natural farming, flavor, and quality are priorities.

Thank you for supporting and enjoying world-class Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Lebanon!
