About The Owners

Chad, Barbara and Clint BraidwoodSaratoga Olive Oil Company is a family business owned and operated by Chad Braidwood, Barbara Braidwood and Clint Braidwood. Our goal is to provide the consumer with the freshest Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the world.  At Saratoga Olive Oil
Co., we follow the olive crush in the northern and southern hemispheres to provide the consumer with the most recently produced and healthiest oils available anywhere. Our motto is "The best olive oil is the freshest olive oil!".

We all worked as research consultants for the pharmaceutical industry before opening up the store. We studied and tested medications on diseases including; depression, psoriasis, leukemia, lymphoma, brain tumors and many other oncology indications. The career change to selling EVOO was not as much of a career change as one might think. There are extraordinary health benefits with consuming EVOOs and Balsamic vinegars. Throughout the store, one is able to read the health benefits that these timeless products provide. All of the olive oils that are sold at Saratoga Olive Oil Co. are laboratory tested for polyphenol counts, oleic acid counts and FFA (free fatty acid) counts to insure that the consumer is receiving the healthiest and freshest EVOOs anywhere in the world!

In addition to the varietal oils, we also offer the opportunity to enjoy naturally flavored olive oils and gourmet oils to tantalize your palate. Our white and red balsamic condimento vinegars are imported from Modena, Italy and are produced using the Solera method yielding a rich, smooth product unlike typical balsamics found in your local grocery store.

Chad, Barbara and Clint BraidwoodWe also offer exotic sea salts for tasting, olive oil based beauty products and locally produced pottery, wood products and other local food products.  We make it our goal to reach out to the local communities and showcase different, unique artisans. Not only do we sell a wide variety of local products, but we also make it a priority to support a wide array of organizations in Saratoga Springs, NY, Burlington, VT and Lake Placid, NY.
