Olive Tree in my yard!

I live in Poway, in the North-Eastern foothills of San Diego, California. A
few days ago, I noticed a tree in my front yard was producing fruit. Quite a
suprise to me. I've lived in this house only three years, but the house is
about 20 years old and the tree is likely to be the same age.
The fruit is, as of today, smaller than a ping-pong ball, yellow (starting to
turn green) and quite round. A neighbor and I check in some reference books
and we're fairly sure that the tree is an O.europea, Euopean Olive Tree.
I read that the fruit is not edible without processing, but I'm wondering if
the oil could be extracted? Any tips or advice regarding this new found source
of Olive Oil in my yard?
Thanks in advance, Holiday Greetings to all.
