Bask in the sunshine

We carefully source our olives from a family-run California farm, then cold-press them into custom-blended oils. Our sole ingredient comes from trees that live on for thousands of years; so you can rest assured that what you’re putting into your body is straight from the earth. It’s grounded. It’s good for you. It’s never seen a lab.

Follow the fruit

Our fruit-forward vinegars are made on a nutrient-dense, family-run farm in California’s Central Coast. Chardonnay and Zinfandel grapes, Navel and Valencia oranges, and ripe Triple Crown blackberries are grown in nutrient-dense soil, selected with care, and double fermented in stainless steel. You’ll taste the process on your palate - zingy and bright, bold and decadent.

Good as gold

Knowing everything that goes into your food allows you to thoroughly enjoy it, and share it with family and friends with more pleasure.

Founder’s Note

When my husband and I started to get into cooking, we expected to improve our well being and boost our confidence in the kitchen.

Instead, we had a bad experience. After eliminating likely culprits like cheese and bread, we believed - much to our surprise - that the cause was the olive oil we were using.

I did some research and quickly discovered the olive oil industry has had a history of problems and that not all olive oils are created equally: there are both good and bad quality products out there.

My personal experience inspired the idea for Brightland, which was born out of a desire for time-honored food production - and a deep belief in the land and what it provides.

My ancestors were salt farmers in South India; the land provided for them, and in turn they provided salt for people in the South. It’s a beautiful cycle when left untouched.

I believe in the California sun & soil, and the beautiful olives, grapes and fruit they yield. It’s my wish that our products provide abundant nourishment to you and the people you love for many breakfasts, lunches and dinners to come.
