Premium 100% Oregon Estate Grown Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Oregon's only National Park, Crater Lake is just up the highway. The lake partly fills a caldera that was formed around 7,700 years ago by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama. Crater Lake is famous for its deep blue color and water clarity. With a depth of 1,949 feet the lake is the deepest in the United States.
The Wild & Scenic North Umpqua River
Freshness you can taste!
We believe River Ranch's ability to produce superior Extra Virgin Olive Oil is directly related to the climatic influence of the North Umpqua River, which borders the olive grove. Gentle breezes flow continually through our little valley.
The famously clear North Umpqua bursts from the towering Cascades through a series of waterfalls. The Oregon Encyclopedia says that the name "Umpqua" comes from the Native American term for "place along the river"; while others claim it means "thundering water" or "dancing water".
Either way, the North Umpqua serves as needed habitat for a variety of resident and anadromous fish species, including summer and winter steelhead, fall and spring Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, and sea-run cutthroat trout. Coincidentally it also boasts some of the world's best fly-fishing. Legendary Western author and fly-fisherman Zane Grey and his family spent their time on this river.
The surrounding area is famous for it's abundance of waterfalls and hiking. Visit
