We cordially invite you, our neighbors and friends, to gather your buckets, boxes and small crates of home-grown olives to create an early harvest community olive oil.
Growers, visit theolivepress.com for harvest tips and tricks!
No olives, no worries!
Join us to taste our award-winning olive oils and balsamic vinegars and learn about the milling process, from orchard to oil. Our mill will be running!
This year we have a 300lbs max for Community Press, at $0.85 per pound.
If you have more than 300lbs, team up with a fellow olive grower and make an appointment for Custom Crush. CUSTOM CRUSH MINIMUM 800 lbs. By appointment only. (For info, click Contact Us link)
Olives affected by the olive fly in excess of 10% will not produce quality EVOO and will not be accepted.
· Oil will be ready for pick up 2 weeks later
· Containers are a small but additional charge, due upon pickup
· Walk-ins only, no reservation required
Each year, the local community gathers at The Olive Press mill with their hand-picked olives to create a community oil. Whether you have a small plastic container or large tubs, we welcome anyone in the local olive growing community. The oil pick-up date will be announced that day, typically a couple weeks after milling.
