Old Country Olive Oil is a premium extra virgin olive oil of the finest quality nature has to offer. It is cold-pressed, unrefined, and unfiltered. The olives are hand-picked and carefully selected from the Abdallah Family’s groves of Tanbourit, a tiny village in the South of Lebanon. The families of this village have cared for and harvested the olives for centuries, making oil and soap for their personal use and livelihood. Today, our hearts are filled with pride as we share this piece of home with you.
George and Latifeh (Laurie) Abdallah, who immigrated to the United States in the 1960’s, started bringing a few gallons of oil for their family’s personal consumption. Word spread among friends, making for an opportunity to share this magnificent product. Today, their daughter continues their legacy, and is determined to share her parent's history and pride for more people to enjoy. We truly hope you will appreciate the rich taste of our olive oil – from our family to yours!
In today's world where most everything is processed, it is important to our family to continue harvesting our olives in the same fashion that our ancestors did centuries ago. It is with great love, care, and pride that we promise never to sacrifice quality, and continue to provide a product that is so rare and precious. It is our ultimate goal to maintain that promise.
