Our Story

The Pinehurst Olive Oil Company is locally owned by Kim and Buck Mims.

Our adventure began one Sunday afternoon 8 years ago as my husband and I discussed our future dreams and goals. Both of us, entrepreneurial-minded at heart, knew we wanted to start a business together. I am a big foodie and love to cook and try new recipes; it is a way of expression for me. I noticed several Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar tasting stores going up and I was fascinated by them!

 

What a great concept! I remember thinking about how fun it would be to work in one, or better yet, own one. I mentioned this idea to my husband and as usual, he was very supportive. At the time, both of us were knee deep in full time jobs and we were not quite ready to make a change in our lives.  Sometimes, however, God has a different plan for our lives and He brings that forth with His perfect timing, not ours.

 

Shortly thereafter, it was brought to our attention that the former Green Gate Olive Oil store located in the quaint village of Pinehurst was for sale. We inquired, negotiated an offer to buy their assets, and we opened our new store –The Pinehurst Olive Oil Co.

"Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act."

 Psalm 37: 4-5

We continue to serve our customers with high-quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and Balsamic Vinegar. They are truly amazing, and it delights me to share so many flavors with our customers.

 

I feel honored to serve you, our amazing community, with healthy food options for your families. I always envision families sitting together at the kitchen table enjoying a meal made with our products. It truly warms my heart.

 

I am beyond blessed to have been given the opportunity to serve you, doing what I love, and I thank you for joining along in one of the most amazing journeys of our lives!

It’s a little shop that gives off a definitive vibe of homeyness. The silver fusti gleam, pleasantly fruity aromas mingle in the air, and Mims is smiling.
