Right here in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, located in the town of Dripping Springs, sits the Texas Hill Country Olive Company. This family-owned orchard prides itself on its products, and, well, they should. Their extra virgin olive oil is award-winning and their value-added products (vinegars, barbecue products, as well as a spa/body line) feature no preservatives, no chemicals, and no dyes. Their property features a Tuscan-inspired mill house, a top-of-the-line Italian olive press, and tasting room. Visit their website for more information and to plan a trip.
