There has been a lot of news about extra virgin olive oils and the lack of regulation on labeling, including the mafia’s involvement and passing of diluted oils as extra virgin. (Yes, the mafia.)
Rest assured any olive oil you purchase at KBC is none of these things. It is thoughtfully sourced for flavor and quality. You won’t find these gems at your local grocery store. These are the real deal and available at KBC Butcher Block.
A completely different route for our Southern states so entrenched in the farming of peanuts and cotton. Who knew that we could have success with olives with the humid airs of our summers? Somehow Georgia Olive Farms is making it work. Kevin, Jason and Sam Shaw are cultivating, harvesting, pressing and blending arbequina, arbosana, and koroneiki olives to make this fantastic extra virgin olive oil. Medium bodied with nice mild finish. Great with black pepper and a slice of fresh baked bread!
