Queen Creek Olive Mill

After doing a little shopping this morning, Shirley, Bernie, and I went to Ihop for stuffed french toast and brunch.  Then while Shirley went to a party at the resort, Bernie and I went to visit Arizona’s only working olive mill and farm.
Queen Creek Olive Mill
Queen Creek Olive Mill is a family owned company that grows and presses olives to produce extra virgin olive oil.  This was like visiting a small apple orchard in Minnesota.  A shop with many different flavors of olive oils, spreads, dips, wine, and much much more; and a cafe..del Piero, a Mediterranean bistro with a local and organic influence.  We enjoyed several of the free samples and bought ourselves an assortment of olives to sample at home.
The Store and Cafe
We did take the “tour”, although it was just sitting and listening to the tour guide tell us about the history of the place and how the olives are processed and pointing to some of the machinery that is used.  But it was interesting.
Outside the shop is a nice large picnic area under the olive trees.
