In 1912, brothers Arthur and Henry Bell followed their dream and bought a small olive grove in the laid back farming community of Reedley, California. For the 18 years that followed, their sole focus was harvesting and selling olives to olive processors throughout central California.
In the 1990’s, the company tripled sales through acquisitions and diversification. This expansion included the Lindsay Olive Company among others.
Today, they sell and market domestic olives, imported olives, and olive-related specialty products under the Lindsay and Bell brand names.
