Vita Sana Olive Oil Company is Charles and Merry Jane Walsh’s latest family owned business which opened in September 2012, in direct response to customers and our love and passion for healthy and tasty foods.

Our love of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the pursuit of the freshest high quality Olive Oil led us to open our own store where we import seasonally according to crush date of the olive. We offer the freshest Single Variety Extra Virgin Olive Oils available from both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. We also carry many different Flavored Extra Virgin Olive Oils.

At Vita Sana Olive Oil Company you will have an opportunity to taste and compare over 42 varieties of the finest imported Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars. At our unique Tasting Bar we store our Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars in stainless steel Fusti’s from Italy, to preserve and protect their individual flavors, ensuring the freshest available Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Aged Balsamic Vinegars.

Our Olives are grown and pressed by small artisans and farmers from around the world, our Balsamic Vinegars are harvested in Modena, Italy, imported to our store and bottled on the premises on a taste first, bottle to order, basis. Our Olive Oils are 100% Extra Virgin, unfiltered and settled. Our Balsamic Vinegars are produced in the traditional Modena style, and are aged in wooden barrels for up to 18 years. Our products do not contain any preservatives, chemicals or additives. Everyone from novice cook, to seasoned chef can enjoy a healthy flavorful lifestyle. We strongly believe that extra virgin olive oil is like fruit juice: highly perishable, healthier and more flavorful when consumed fresh. This is one of the reasons why we post the Harvest Date on the oils offered at Vita Sana.

In addition to the harvest date, we are extremely fanatical when it comes to the “chemistry” of our olive oils. The chemistry of specific oil can tell you many things. By testing an oil, we can learn the polyphenol count (antioxidant value), the measurement which dictates flavor intensity, to whether it’s suitable for high heat cooking, based on its unique free fatty acid measurement and fruit condition. We also measure oleic acid in our oils, the monounsaturated fat in Olive Oil that makes it so healthy. Our location in downtown Casper provides our customers the opportunity to experience just one of the many charming and thriving aspects of Casper that make this city so unique.  The co-location of Vita Sana Olive Oil Company and The Merry Peddler Kitchen Store in the Wolcott Galleria provides our customers easy and friendly access to gourmet foods and cookware.
