Frog Hollow Farm is a C.C.O.F. certified organic fruit orchard located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Sustainability is an important value that owner Farmer Al Courchesne has embraced since choosing to go organic in 1989. We steward our land with care and believe in treading lightly, so not only is the world a better, healthier place, but our neighbors and family are, too.
ABOUT OUR GROVE
Sprawled across two non-contiguous acres on our fertile farmland, our olive grove boasts trees that stand as tall as 25 feet. According to Farmer Al, “Our trees are twice as tall as trees in other California olive groves except for the Picholino trees I have seen in an ancient, 100-year-old grove in Pleasanton, CA.” At Frog Hollow Farm, we grow four Tuscan varieties — Leccino, Frantoio, Maurino, Pendolino — that are best suited for Brentwood’s terroir and we hand-pick our crop. Each tree produces approximately two gallons of olive oil.
OUR PERFECT DAY
A day that ends with a crust of fresh sourdough bread and a bowl of extra virgin olio nuovo and a glass of pinot noir.
