Olivegevity is a company that takes great pride in its exceptional products which come from a small family-owned organic farm located near Sparta, Greece. This region has a legendary connection with ancient Greek civilization, as it was the seat of power of ancient Sparta renown for her discipline and military prowess throughout the ancient world. Great things still come from the area around Sparta, and some of those great things are the olives and organic extra virgin olive oil produced by the farm. Olives are cultivated there now, just as they were more than 3,000 years ago, and if anything, the quality is even better than when the ancient Greeks grew their crops.
We still consider the olive tree and olive-growing to be a sacred trust, which is why every single tree is tended by hand, so as to be sure that it receives proper attention and has everything it needs to produce world-class olives. Our farming methods are the most sustainable in the region because we feel a responsibility for continuing the tradition of olive-growing, and we are determined to pass on the privilege to future generations. We are always researching new methods and ways of producing even better olives, which means we incorporate the latest technology into our processes, while still observing the traditional farming ways.
Award-Winning Olivegevity Olives
So, how good are our olives? We’re a little biased of course, and we believe all of our olives are the absolute finest ones produced on the planet – but you don’t have to take our word for it. At the Great Taste Awards held in London, England in 2019, two of our products, in particular, were singled out for the highest taste distinction in their category and won 2 Gold Stars at the Best Taste Award. The first of these was the Telies Olives with Aromatic Herbs, which are gourmet Kalamata olives infused with extra virgin olive oil, water, lemon juice, vinegar, marjoram, fennel seeds, rosemary, oregano, and salt. These olives have won four other awards since 2012 for great taste, and for being a healthy dinner choice.
The second of our gourmet olives to win the Best Taste Award were the Lemonenies Olives without Vinegar. This olive is infused with various ingredients to achieve its distinctive flavor. Along with extra virgin olive oil and water, these olives are also infused with lemon peel, lemon juice, marjoram, oregano, laurel, savory, and salt. All these flavors combined give it a taste that puts it at the top of its class. Since 2013, these olives have won no less than eight different awards for great taste, as well as for their contribution to better health.
