What's "Celebrating the Olive Harvest" all about and why should you come?

What's "Celebrating the Olive Harvest" all about and why should you come?

It's about connecting with and supporting our growers and food artisans while having a very good time.

That means seeing the olive oil being pressed, meeting the producers, tasting some local oils (and buying some if you want), eating great food (included in the ticket price) and being immersed in all things olive.

Come along and enjoy yourself and help change our food system for the better -  one bite at a time.
