Erez & Vered Ben-Sadon's family’s love for the land and love for working it combined with meticulous attention to growing the highest quality olives and pressing them using up-to-date equipment produces an outstanding final product. Their olive groves grow on the banks of the Shilo stream, in rocky terra rossa soil, in a cool climate and healthy exposure to the sun. The uniqueness of the Tura olive oil is reflected in its low pH level (up to 0.3% only), much lower than the required level of acidity for extra virgin olive oil. Enjoy this outstanding high quality Olive Oil as you hold Prophecy in your hands!
