The American Dream is definitely what owners Donna and Tom Harper pursued. Visiting Blue Ridge and falling in love with it, this couple decided they wanted to come up with something unique to open in this adorable town, where they could live and enjoy what they do. This is how the Blue Ridge Olive Oil Company evolved this past October.
Both of them realizing the amazing health benefits of Olive Oil, they felt this would be something they could feel good about sharing with the public. Donna, with a medical background, says that 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil can lower cholesterol, blood pressure and help prevent alzheimers. They have been very pleased at how interested in the health issues that the public has shown while visiting their new store.
When you visit the olive oil company, you will be able to choose from over 65 varieties of oil as well as dark and light vinaigrette. You will also be able to taste test many of these from so many parts of the world including Italy, Spain and Greece. Their future plans are to offer cooking demonstrations using their products. Stop by and taste and order the oils that you love! They are open seven days a week from 11am to 7pm.
