by Solar Olives
For over 150 years, our family's olive trees have been nurtured by the alkaline soils of the remote village of Kour, in northern Lebanon. At an altitude of 450 m, this special land provides the centenarian trees with the proper aeration for root growth, permeability, and high water-holding capacity, producing olives that literally burst with flavor. For generations, our trees have been free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, which makes our extra virgin olive oil 100% organic. Solar is a welcome addition to any dish, bringing a refreshing finish of aromas, fruitiness, and lightness that will enliven the senses.
