Dreamcatcher Olive Oil began with a little girl who desperately wanted her very own horse. Emma Salvestrin began riding horses when she was 6 years old. It was apparent from that very first day that she had found an incredible love of both riding and horses. Emma rode several times a week and excelled at the Hunter Jumper discipline. She started competing in horse shows when she was just 10. Along the way Emma leased the horses she rode, but longed for they day when she could own her own horse. So with her sweet smile and best batting of her eye lashes Emma asked her parents to buy her a horse. Much to Emma’s dismay, the answer was no. However, Emma’s parents, Rich and Shannon, told their daughter that although they would not purchase a horse for her, they would support her if she came up with a plan to earn the money to buy a horse. Thus, Dreamcatcher Olive Oil was born.
At the age of 13, Emma put a business plan together to harvest the olives on the family’s estate property and put it in bottle. The production on her first olive oil run was 144 bottles. Emma sold every bottle and earned just enough money to purchase Troy, a 16 year old Hanoverian Warmblood. Emma is now 17 and still enjoying riding Troy, they are quite a team. Dreamcatcher Olive Oil has been a tremendous learning experience for Emma and continues to support Emma’s riding endeavors as well as build a nice savings account for college, which is right around the corner for her. Thank you for helping Emma catch her dream.
Dreamcatcher Extra Virgin Olive is made from Arbequina olives from the Southern Central Coast of California. We have learned that we don’t get olives every year on our estate trees, but when we do have olives to harvest, we add them to the blend.
