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.
