Maurice and Cindy Penna is not only an olive lover, it’s their lifestyle. They talk olives, think olives, eat olives, and even dream olives on a daily basis. They are the only handler from the tree to the store, to provide consistency and quality olives to your table.

The Penna Gourmet Foods at M&CP Farms in Northern California, they also incorporate old processes that are improved and made safe by modern microbiology. Owned by Maurice and Cindy Penna, they have been in business since 1979 and leading since then for the only ripe style olive processor.

The focus for the Penna’s is on quality olives and olive produces that puts M&CP Farms at the forefront of the custom packed fresh olive market in California.

They also provide a variety of olive base recipe and fresh olives to cure at home for the people who enjoy the art of home processing and canning. I love their Italian Pasta Salad, which I had already tried. My kids loved it and would want me to do it again. Below is a the details of their recipe:

Italian Pasta Salad Anthony Williams


  • One 16-ounce package rotini (spiral) pasta
  • One 10 oz. jar Italian Deli Mix
  • One 16 oz. jar Bernstein’s Cheese Fantastico! Dressing
  • 1/2 lb. thin sliced dry salami
  • Marinated artichoke hearts, as many as you like


  • Cook pasta according to directions. While pasta is cooking, drain and chop the contents of the Italian Deli Mix jar. Then slice the salami into quarters. Once pasta is drained, rinsed and cooled, add all the ingredients and allow to sit overnight (refrigerated.) The pasta will absorb much of the salad dressing, so don’t worry if it appears you added too much.

They also have a great recipe for home curing techniques , including the wonderful Mediterranean Partida Style as well as the Lye Process.

    The olive tree is native to the Mediterranean region and Western Asia, and spread to nearby countries from there. It is estimated the cultivation of olive trees began more than 7000 years ago. As far back as 3000 BC, olives were grown commercially in Crete; they may have been the source of the wealth of the Minoan civilization.
