Manassas Olive Oil Company
Manassas Olive Oil Company started in 2014. Two army veterans personally sought to work with groves and orchards to ensure the quality and freshness in every bottle of their deliciously infused balsamic and olive oils. These oils can be used on anything from a spring garden salad to meats and vegetables. The infused flavors range from the exotic Cara Cara Oranges of Madagascar to harissa of the Middle East. Though, for more classic tastes they do have lemon, rosemary, sesame and much more!
