Tasting hours are held Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The fruit shed is home to the High-Hand Art Gallery, which showcases some of the area’s leading artists.

What is extra virgin olive oil? The simplest explanation: fresh olive juice. In order to be considered “extra virgin” the olive oil must be mechanically extracted using mechanical means, not heat or chemicals. High-Hand sells some of the best extra virgin olive oils. Their premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil is smooth and sweet, with no bitter aftertaste. It is first pressed using expeller methods. High-Hand also offers flavored versions, which use their mild extra virgin olive oil as a base with concentrates or extracts added for endless flavor options. Another variety of oil offered is infused oil, which is extra virgin olive oil with fresh herbs and spices added.
As a great pairing to the extra virgin olive oil, visitors can taste the white and dark balsamic vinegar, which originates from artisan producers from California and Modena, Italy. Some of the oil and vinegar pairings High-Hand recommends are balsamic with citrus olive oil and extra virgin olive oil, which makes a tasty salad dressing and also works for finishing drizzles, reduction sauces, and over ice cream. For more balsamic vinegar recipes, such as balsamic vinegar dressing and balsamic chicken, the company offers a recipe selection on their website.
