Wat je gaat doen
A rare and unique opportunity awaits you! Experience life on an Olive Farm with a hands on approach where you will literally roll up your sleeves, participate in the harvest and taste the fruits of your labor! We are providing 2 sessions; morning and afternoon. Whether you choose the morning or afternoon session, your experience begins with meet and greet accompanied with refreshments and light snack. We will give a brief talk on the history of olives in California and how Olea Farm came to be. We will discuss our harvesting methods and then head out to the orchard to start picking olives! Our picking session will last about 1.5 - 2 hours. After harvesting we will take our bounty to the worlds largest Mobile Mill (Mill On Wheels) where the olives will begin their journey of becoming liquid gold! We will tour the mill and watch it work all the while explaining the process and techniques required to produce top notch 100% California EVOO. At the end of our session you will grab a bottle and fill it up with the freshest, most flavorful Extra Virgin Olive Oil you have ever tasted! Nature’s gift to you as a remembrance of your day on the Farm your labor of love. Our tasting Room will be open so that you may taste different olive oil varieties, flavored olive oils and other local culinary delights!
