Generations of Tradition...
For thousands of years, Native American people have lived in the oak forests, rolling hills and grasslands in California's Capay Valley, tending the natural resources and creating eternal bonds with the land. Today, much of this land is planted with vineyards, olive trees and a bounty of carefully nurtured crops.

The new Séka Hills Olive Mill is located in the heart of the Capay Valley, a prime olive-growing region. The 14,000 square foot facility is full service – from the cleaning and milling of just-picked olives to storage and bottling of wonderfully fresh oil. The state-of-the-art equipment is designed and manufactured by Alfa Laval in Florence, Italy and is among the first of its kind in the United States. With a 3.5 ton per hour processing capacity, the Séka Hills mill is precisely scaled to suit the needs of local Yolo County olive growers.
To preserve maximum flavor and health benefits, the certified organic Séka Hills Olive Mill uses an oxygen-free process that shields the olive paste from exposure to air during the milling process. Limiting oxygen exposure helps create the freshest premium extra virgin olive oil possible, ready for immediate bottling in a full range of consumer and commercial packaging.
