Mission Olive Ranch

Oroville, California

$495,000 | 53 ± Acres | Butte County

This beautiful 53+/- acre property is located in the foothills of Butte County, just 12 minutes from central Oroville.  The land is gently rolling terrain, with an old olive orchard and pasture grasses under the picturesque trees.  The history of olives runs deep in Butte County, with John Bidwell planting olives in the late 1880’s and Frieda Ehmann, who started a company that birthed the California ripe olive industry.  As the name of the road (Mission Olive) references, the Franciscan Missionaries planted the first of the California olives, resulting in a North American varietal that is referred to as the Mission Olive, used for both eating olives and for olive oil production and recognized for its own rich fruity buttery flavor.   The orchard on this property has not been tended in many years, but still offers a special ambience and the trees drop their black fruits back to the soil.

This parcel of land sits with access to two paved roads, but offers a great deal of privacy and pretty views of both the northern Sacramento Valley and the coast range on clear days, and the much closer Table Mountain which lays along the north side of Oroville.

If you’re looking for a great location for a country estate home, a place to build your own small farm or orchard, horse facility, etc, come tour the Mission Olive Ranch.  It’s just 12 minutes back to a hospital, grocery stores, 10 minutes to dining and fuel and less than 15 minutes to Lake Oroville for boating, fishing, riding and hiking trails.  The amazing waterfowl hunting of the northern Sacramento Valley is within a half hour and you’re just over an hour to Sacramento.  The Bay Area and Tahoe are within an easy weekend trip distance, allowing you access to a wide variety of activities while still enjoying the solitude and quiet of country living!
