As anyone who has already met us can tell you, we are not from around here. However, we feel blessed to call Franklin, PA, our home. David served 27 years in the US Air Force, traveling and living all over the world. As the wife of a military member, I also enjoyed some of these travels and new places. After retirement, we fulfilled a dream of “full-time” RVing, and that allowed us to experience even more amazing sights, local traditions and, most importantly, the food.
Over the years, we would talk about living in a small town and maybe having a business of our own someday. Within the first 10 minutes of walking down the tree-lined streets of Franklin, we were in love with this small town. Deciding on what type of business we wanted was a bit more challenging than deciding to move to a whole new state. In our travels, we found many business ideas exciting and unique, but the ones we liked best usually involved cooking or gourmet foods and the like. So, when we finally decided on the olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting room, it felt right.
We want to offer the things that will enhance your culinary creations and bring excitement to your taste buds. We have chosen local, smaller companies that use the finest high-quality ingredients and materials in their business. Our EVOO has been carefully pressed to provide the maximum health benefits of the olive fruit, keeping it fresh and full of flavor. Our Balsamic Vinegars are barrel-aged for the perfect balance of tart and sweet. So, let us share our passion for gourmet foods with you and unlock the World of Flavor.
