Chef Beto Huizar was born and raised in a countryside in Jalisco Mexico. Where he learned to appreciate fresh local ingredients by working with cattle, pigs, and cultivating produce at a young age with his family. Beto started working in the kitchen at the age of 18. It was there when he discovered his passion for cooking. Working under different Chefs and mentors for over 20 years made him define his own style of cooking.

The Olive Oil Source
The Olive Oil Source strives to be and is recognized internationally as the most comprehensive resource for products, trends, and information on everything related to olive oil. Whether you are a producer seeking information on the latest equipment, a retailer of olive oil related products, or an olive oil lover, our goal is to have “Everything but the Olive” available for you. The Olive Oil Source website was originally developed to provide information about olive oil. Adding products for sale, and eventually an on-line store came as a natural development as visitors asked us to help them find various items.
We are in the unique position of having personal experience with growing olives and maintaining an organic orchard, making olive oil, packaging and marketing it, and running a business. This allows us to provide our customers with products and information based on actual field experience. We pride ourselves on trying to help our customers be as successful as they can be rather than just sell them something. We strive to give them the best possible advice whether they want to buy a gift for a friend, find original wedding or party favors, buy equipment for their orchard or buy a complete line of commercial milling equipment. Please let us know if there is anything you did not find and that you would like us to help you with.

Local Farming Products
Buttonwood Farm is a small gem set amidst the splendor of Santa Barbara County’s Santa Ynez Valley. The farm is a shining example of the vision of our founder, Betty Williams. Betty was always ahead of her time, and in the 60’s set out to create a working farm based on good practices for people, animals and the earth. First there were horses, then organic vegetables and finally, a vineyard.
Today, our 39-acre vineyard stretches across a sun-drenched mesa on the eastern portion of our 106-acre property. We started planting in 1983 and now have 33,000 vines, small in the world of wine, but huge to us. Our tasting room is surrounded by other bounty from the farm, including olives, pomegranates, peonies, herbs, summer vegetables and of course, our famous peaches!
