Olive Oil Farm Tour and Tasting in Ojai

Owner Alice Asquith offers a 3-part tour that consists of a) a brief history of olive oil production in CA, explanation of the growth cycle of an olive tree, picking practices shown in one of the small fields (very little walking involved), b) an explanation of the state-of-the art olive mill that produces the extra-virgin olive oil, c) time in the tasting room to sample the 4 regular plus 5 naturally flavored olives oils they produce, as well as the 11 balsamic vinegars which they IMPORT from Modena, Italy. <br />

</p>
Olive oil and vinegar will be available for purchase - great gifts for the holidays :)</p>
Car pool encouraged. Since I live in Summerland, I can meet you there or if someone wants to car pool from Santa Barbara, let me know.</p>

    visiting the olive farm was just a joy. I've always loved olive oil and enjoy infused oils so seeing how the olives are grown and harvested was very interesting. knowing that the fruit is bitter and the oil is sweet was fascinating. it reminds me of some people I know!

    geri, thank you for a great experience!

    Alice's tour was interesting with lots of practical information and fun humor. Tasting and critiquing the olive oil and vinegars with others was special.

    A very enjoyable afternoon and tour. Alice, our hostess, did a fantastic job on giving us the early history and the production process of olive oil processing. Thanks for organizing this Gerri. Definitely worth a repeat.
