Great stop if you're passing through! NOT worth a drive.

Lovely people, charming place. Not much to it, though. Perhaps the tour is more compelling during harvest season, when the machinery is actually running! But a lovely glimpse into... read more

Lovely people, charming place. Not much to it, though. Perhaps the tour is more compelling during harvest season, when the machinery is actually running! But a lovely glimpse into a bygone era, and a fun 30 minutes if you happen to be close by.

This was a nice history lesson in olive oil pressing. I found out on tv that this place was haunted, but I didn't see or feel anything. I would definitely buy the olive oil, very tasty.

This was a fun stop. We didn't have time to tour the entire facility and were just a bit disappointed to learn that all plants are not at this location. What we did see was great! The ladies in the gift shop were super patient and wrapped all our purchases very well in bubble wrap to take back on the... More

This is the place to visit for great olives, gifts, and especially hospitality--you will come away happier, just for talking with the charming ladies who operate the shops and tours. Been visiting for over 30 years, and it's always been a family-run business integral to Ontario. Original founders built much of the city.

We always take out of town guests to the Graber Olive House, a small company that produces the unique Graber olives. The tour is very interesting, and the gift shop offers samples of many of their products. We serve the Graber size 16 olives at special occasions, and they are consistently a hit with guests, most of whom did not... More

This place was perfect to take my 2 teens to after school. Ive been struggling to find something other to do then our usual restaurant or shopping. It didnt look like much from the street but once you walk in you are immediately consumed by the charm. Beautiful gift shop with tons of things to look at and samples. Olives... More

At home we really like Graber Olive, so we decided to pay a visit to their home site. And this place didn't fail me! It was such an amazing experience to see the produce line and the making process with my own two eyes! Our guide was also a great help, he had a wide knowledge about the plant, the... More

If you LOVE olives, and want to go back in time... this is the place. It is a wonderful gift shop. old school feel (even the sales tickets are still written by hand), and tons of gifts and food items.

Graber Olives have been in business for years; and my late Mother-in-law always brought them for our Thanksgiving dinner; but I had never visited the home site before. It was fascinating to see them sorting olives by size in equipment designed by the original owner. Our guide even knew family members and had been associated with them and the business... More
