After retirement, Nan McEvoy purchased a former dairy farm spanning 550 acres in Petaluma, which she decided to use to produce Tuscan olive oil. With the help of Maurizio Castelli, one of Italy's foremost experts on the subject, McEvoy has turned her 1,000 seedlings imported from Tuscany into a booming business. The olives are certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and are milled, blended, and bottled at the ranch with the help of a state-of-the-art Rapanelli frantoio (an olive oil mill). The ranch produces a traditional blend that combines six Italian varietals, two small-batch oils, and a line of body care. Public tours and events are held April through October.
