Dancing Ewe Farm in Washington County, New York, is known for the Tuscan-style cheeses made by its owners, Jody and Luisa Somers, and sold Fridays at the Union Square Greenmarket. The couple’s newest product is not a ricotta or a Pecorino, though, but an extra-virgin olive oil, pressed from fruit grown on Luisa’s family’s groves in Tuscany’s Maremma region. Last fall, the Somerses harvested a mixture of Frantoio, Leccino, and Moraiolo olives from 300 trees and had them pressed at the local frantoio (olive mill). The unfiltered, aromatic oil is smooth and peppery and sells for $30 a 500ml bottle at dancingewe.com.
