Serving the terminally ill homeless
Twenty years ago, Jim Mayer bought land in Yolo County, CA and planted olive trees. Today, he produces the award-winning olive oil Frate Sole. But his enterprise is more than just an economic livelihood, it’s a mission. He continues to develop sustainable, organic ways of farming while making donations to Joshua’s House and organizations that help the poor. He is also donating a bottle of olive oil to each Joshua’s House donor who makes a gift of $500 or more. Watch video for details.
