Olives are one of the holy foods of the Bible known as the “Seven Species,” which sustained the people of Israel in biblical times, and continue to sustain them today. Our friends at Israel21c share the top 10 olive oils you can find in the Holy Land.

Olive trees have an ancient presence in Israeli land and culture, so it’s no wonder that this rich source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals is a pretty big deal here.

These are our picks of the top boutique brands producing some of the finest extra-virgin olive oils around. Visit these presses and farms in Israel, or order a bottle online. You’ll gain an understanding of what real fresh unadulterated olive oil can and should be…

Family-owned Galili Olive Oil operates out of pastoral Beit Lehem (Bethlehem) Haglilit, a center for boutique food production in the Western Galilee. The family tends its 20-year-old organic olive grove on the edge of an ancient oak forest.

What started as a family hobby turned into a full-blown business and tourist center when Eran, the youngest Galili child, built a boutique mill in 2010 using a special olive press brought in from Tuscany.

In the visitors’ center you can taste seven oil varieties in addition to fine goat cheese, wines and other unique delicacies produced at boutique farms in the area.
