Nestled on a hill, on Warm Springs Road, in quaint Glen Ellen, the farm is privately owned and operated.
Boasting more than 200 olive trees, Warm Springs Farm has been growing award-winning olives since 2011.
Warm Springs Farm Extra Virgin Olive Oil, previously only shared with friends and family, is now available direct-to-consumer.
Maribelle knew something was missing from her Glen Ellen property, so she took time to get to know the farm and the region then realized what it was...olive trees. Since she wanted to grow on the land, but was not interested in entering the wine business, an olive orchard was the perfect solution.
There was no way of knowing that the combination of terroir (even in drought years), expert advice and farming, plus trees sourced in Italy would produce exceptional olives that when blended would create an award-winning oil.
Mollyanne Mira Meyn draws on the principles of ecological design, organic agriculture and Permaculture. She farms with curiosity and decades of experience working with sustainable landscapes, gardens and farms in the region. She approaches farming, land design and management with a multidisciplinary approach that draws on the wisdom of ancient and modern growing traditions.
Mollyanne loves helping the plants she cares for yield their best. She thinks that Warm Springs Olive Oil's olive trees are a stellar example of that work. She is proud of her team, who farm with love, passion and always come to learn by seeing this olive orchard with fresh eyes.
Mollyanne is especially proud of farming for and with Warm Springs’ founder, Maribelle, who values growing the orchard in balance with nature and who always prioritizes doing the right thing.
