Although they didn't start growing their own olives until 2001, Ed Curiel and his family have a long history in California ripe olive farming.

Ed's father, Jose, emigrated from Mexico in the early 1960s to work in California orchards, picking olives, peaches and other crops. “Old Blue,” the family’s trusted truck served as not only their transportation, but also their home, as they migrated from Mexico to California throughout the years. In 1980s, the Curiel family made Corning, California their permanent residence, and two decades later, purchased the very olive orchard they used to hand pick.

Today, the Curiel family extends beyond Ed’s immediate family, it also includes the same harvest crew they have worked with for more than 15 years, and of course, “Old Blue.”
