Milling at McEvoy Ranch

We offer three different options for olive milling each harvest season to meet the needs of small, mid and large-scale growers. We understand that the weight of your crop will be an estimate - please find the category below you feel best describes your projected crop. Olives should be harvested approximately 24 hours prior to scheduled milling date.

Please consider bringing a non-perishable food item with you to McEvoy Ranch to donate to our Redwood Empire Food Bank collection barrel!

 

COMMUNITY MILLING (LOW-VOLUME)

Dates: Sundays — November 24th and December 8th
Time: 8 am - 10:30 am drop off
Quantity: 1 – 499 pounds of olives

Our Community Milling Days are an opportunity for small growers to combine their olives to create a truly local blend. We mill Tuscan fruit in one batch and all other fruit in another; the amount of olive oil you receive is commensurate to the number of pounds you contribute (no amount is too small!). Pre-registration is required.
