Fresh Harvest offers a fantastic selection of extra virgin olive oils, fused and infused olive oils, specialty oils, and many flavors of fine-aged balsamic, plus gourmet grocery goods.
All of our olive oils are ultra-premium grade which is more stringent than USDA organic. We operate two Tasting Rooms in Arkansas and have a thriving web business. We work primarily with a West coast family who has been in the olive oil business for nearly 100 years. We partner with farmers in both hemispheres to deliver the freshest olive oil all year long through relationships. Only the greenest olives are harvested by hand and crushed within 4-6 hours of harvest, then cold-pressed using proprietary techniques to ensure the most delicious tasting EVOO that is amazingly rich in antioxidants.
Our primary supplier directly sources ultra-premium extra virgin olive oils from mostly family-operated farms in both Hemispheres. Our products are truly artisanal. Our family supplier manages the farming methods, harvest, and crush every step of the way! This exceptional sourcing enables us to offer world-class products at reasonable prices. We can also provide authentic Balsamic Vinegar direct from Modena, Italy, which is 97% Grape Must through these family relationships.
Olives are fruits. Extra virgin olive oil is fruit juice: highly perishable, healthier, and more flavorful when consumed fresh and full of excellent nutrients. This is one of the reasons we post the crush date and chemical analysis on every ultra-premium extra virgin olive oil we offer.
High Biophenol extra virgin olive oil and authentic Balsamic vinegar have incredible healing properties. Unfortunately, the FDA does not regulate these overseas products sold in the United States. Our experience is that most foreign “extra virgin” olive oil sold in the US is adulterated and mislabeled. Much of it is mostly Canola oil with green food coloring and is not fit for human consumption. We estimate nearly ALL imported ‘extra virgin’ olive oil sold in the United States is fake, and suppliers lie on their labels. And nearly all vinegar labeled as “balsamic” in the United States is red wine vinegar mixed with thickeners and sweeteners. At Fresh Harvest, we offer the real deal.
Troy Johnson and Steve Ketchersid created Fresh Harvest in October 2012 and chose the beautiful Arkansas Ozarks to showcase the unique products they can offer. Fresh Harvest is not a franchise. And we have the most reputable and dynamic supplier in the world! We are committed to providing you with the healthiest and best products in the world at what is wholesale prices compared to high-end stores.
