Olive Farm and Mill Tour

Slow Food Portland is hosting a tour of Red Ridge Farms, one of the few olive farms and mills in Oregon. Given the questionable quality of many imported olive oils, I'm looking forward to learning about a local olive oil source I can trust.


• Introduction to the farm, meet the Durant family.

• History of olives and olive oil

• Tour of olive grove with Paul Durant

• Olive farming 101

• View the olive pressing mill in action

• Sample different olive oil varietals and Durant Vineyard wines

• Light snacks (but attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy after the tour)

• Please dress appropriately as most of the activities are outdoors.

Cost is $15 ($10 for Slow Food members). Reservations must be made here by October 31.
