Queen Creek olives
We took a day trip to Queen Creek olive groves one Saturday. The groves are family owned and operated and there is a magnificent sales room full of the oils and vinegars they make on the farm. We took a tour of the processing room and learned about the process of making olive oil. Above is a picture of an old time press. Olive trees are very open and not easy to photograph. I did my best. The property is beautifully landscaped and open for lunch. Someone was having a bridal shower in the tented pavilion on the day we visited. Perfect weather added to the perfect day.
