My favorite time of the year is the Fall Harvest and milling season.
The bounty of our Farm, the organic garden, and the Olive harvest is in full swing. This season closely links the Farm and the Kitchen in the Grove.
Tasting plates at the Visitors Center reflect our garden’s produce and the uniqueness of our Extra Virgin Olive Oils. Each month’s presentation of oils and tasting plates are different and unique, and reflects the imaginations of the Chefs, the Gardener, and the Millers.
The olive mill is working very well. Please stop by to view our new movie on milling olives. It will give you a finer appreciation of the power and elegance of the Italian equipment. When you stop by, and if we are milling olives, I would love to have you taste the new fresh oil as it is coming out of the centrifuge. It is an amazing taste experience, never to be forgotten.
Olio Nuovo, a beautiful new oil is now available to dress your harvest dishes. It is the very best oil of the year. New Fresh Oil.
Even with the sparse amount of olives this season, we have made some lovely oils. The early harvest of mostly green olives gives the oil a beautiful fragrance, solid bitterness, and lingering pungency.
This combination is the best pairing with Fall foods. Big flavorful oils, savory foods, cooler days.
We are grateful for our Fall Harvest.
