Olive Tree Pruning Workshop

McEvoy Ranch


Date: Friday, March 2nd, 2018
Time: 9:30am–3:30pm
Cost: $175
Location: McEvoy Ranch

Back by popular demand and expanded to allow plenty of time in the field, join olive farming expert Samantha Dorsey for a full-day workshop which will outline the special considerations for pruning productive, fruit-bearing olive trees and help you finesse your techniques.


Topics will include:

  • Timing
  • Proper Use of Tools
  • Different Techniques for Different Applications
  • Young Trees vs Older Trees
  • Maximizing Fruit Production

A lunch will be provided by The Ranch Chef, Mark Rohrmeier at the McEvoy Pagoda.


After lunch we will gather in one of our olive orchards for further instruction, observation and practice of techniques. Please come prepared to spend time in the field – we will be on uneven surfaces and temperatures/conditions may vary. We will have a few extra pruning tools on hand, but please feel free to bring your own. Dress and footwear should be appropriate for outdoor orchard conditions.

Following the workshop, please join us at our Ranch Shop and Tasting Room for a 3 wine flight, olive oil and nibbles. Allow time to explore our retail shop where we feature our olive oil, wines, estate products and ODE body care line. Wine club members will enjoy their discount.

Please Note

The weather can change quickly; jackets, sunglasses, hats and umbrellas may come in handy. Mildly rainy conditions will not cancel the tour, event or workshop. Please leave your pets at home as they are not allowed in our buildings and vehicles parked on the gravel get extremely hot in the sun.

The speed limit is 15 mph or less once you turn off the main road, out of respect for our neighbors and the local wildlife. McEvoy Ranch is a private residence; please stay with your group during your visit.
