US Discovers Oil

Far North Olive Oil, a premium extra-virgin oil, from New Zealand is on sale in farmers markets in the North West United States thanks to the efforts of locals Charles and Gayle Pancerzewski, who bought a 25-acre olive grove in the north of New Zealand where they spend half the year preparing the oil. The couple takes pride in the quality of their product and believe this is probably the only of its kind available in the Northwest. Extra virgin olive oil is the best, made without a hydraulic press or centrifuge. Processes that use heat or intense pressure degrade the oil and take away most of its health benefits. “Basically, you’d be better off buying canola oil,” Pancerzewski said.
