The Erickson family represents five generations of olive growers in the Central Valley of California. They started farming in Easton, just south of Fresno, in 1879 and 30 years later, bought the ranch where their first olive grove still stands today. Jim Erickson and his sons, Lee and Jason, continue the tradition of family farming started decades ago by meeting each and every morning to start their work on the farm.

For the Erickson’s, they believe that there is something truly special in being able to walk the same groves as the many generations before them. A sixth generation of California olive growers are waiting in the wings, but in the meantime, they’ll happily enjoy their California Ripe Olives right out of the can.
