Caltech Olive Festival

Every year, Caltech harvests the olives from 130 olive trees on campus in Pasadena, CA.  They send most of the harvest to a local company to press and bottle, but there are some dedicated students who press olives immediately, creating a gorgeous purple goo from which the freshest olive oil can be skimmed.

Many California vendors, including Trader Joe’s, sell olive oil produced here in California.
