The McCauley Family moved to Balfour
Road in Brentwood, California in 1975.
They grew an almond orchard and also had a chicken farm/egg business
on the property while growing up.
As the two brothers both enjoyed living on the property and enjoyed the country
living, they are once again in the farming business together along with their
Sean, his wife Maria and their three daughters, Marissa,
Mallory and Michaela moved out to Deer Valley Road in
Brentwood and planted an Olive Orchard in 2000.
They began to press their olives into Extra
Virgin Olive Oil in 2003.
Many ask “why Olive trees?”
The answer to this is: Olive trees do not
require much water at all, so that allows the water
from the rains each year to carry the trees through
The Olive tree was also the McCauley’s choice as
it is a beautiful tree and served the needs
of the community by having a quality extra
virgin olive oil product.
Soon after the McCauley’s planted their orchard
many surrounding neighbors along Deer Valley
Road and Briones Valley Road grew to wanting
to be a part of this
new beauty and growth for their land as well.
There are now a total of 75 acres of Olive
trees in this area
with many more of the nearby land owners
wanting to plant as well.
In 2008 the McCauley’s decided to plant on the
land they grew up on to enhance that land
as well as to help meet the growing demand
for Olive Oil that the McCauley Olive Oil
business was facing.
While providing Olive oil for many of the local fruit stands, restaurants and
stores there was still a high request for a country store where locals could
McCauley’s Olive oil and other locally grown products.
So in July of 2009 the McCauley’s opened “McCauley
Olive Groves” on the property where they grew up and where Glen and his
son Trenton live now.
The store not only offers a wide variety of flavored olive oils, balsamic vinegar,
local nuts, honey, gift baskets and many other items but they also have a
seasonal fruit stand open which carries fruits and vegetables from Lon’s
This store has allowed the family to
all take part in the business.
The family all takes part in making this business a success.
From tending the orchards to harvesting to bottling and running the store.
It has been a wonderful experience for the McCauley family.
of our olives are pressed locally,
use only local labor & provide
locally grown products.
We are happy to be a part of the Brentwood community
and give back in the form
of Brentwood Olive Oil.
