Welcome to Olive Pit! Offering Olives and More!
Pete and Ann Craig
Over 40 years ago, Pete and Ann Craig displayed several jars of olives on a small shelf of the original Olive Pit – a frosty and hamburger stand – to see if any one would be interested in buying their locally grown, locally produced olives. People were quick to purchase the olives and a Corning tradition was born.
Today the Craig family, including Ann, still serves travelers with tasty frosties and delicious olive burgers – their store has expanded five times to meet the demands of hungry visitors. The inventory has also expanded and now includes a variety of Olives, Olive Oils, Nuts, Vinegars, Mustards and Gift Items – local products that will liven up any meal, from a quiet meal for two to a large gathering of friends and family.
