Queen Creek Olive Mill


Now - April 4, 2014

Friday | 9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.


Olives are one of the world's oldest cultivated crops, and olive trees have been used for landscaping for hundreds of years. Now, growers in the Southwest are cultivating the trees for their oil. At the Queen Creek Olive Mill southeast of Chandler, visitors can see the trees, sample the many olive products produced at the mill, and learn more about this distinguished fruit. The Garden has arranged for a special presentation and guided tasting, not available to regular Mill visitors, by an internationally ranked olive oil taster. This will be followed by lunch in the picnic area in one of the olive groves and a short additional presentation. Relax and let us drive you there, or meet us at the site. Transportation from the Garden departs promptly at 8 a.m. and returns at 2 p.m. For those self-driving to the program, please arrive at the Queen Creek Olive Mill by 9:15 a.m.
