This two-hour experience includes a walk in the orchards and the vineyards where we will explain the horticulture of our plantings. We will then proceed through the frantoio olive mill to learn about our unique process of extracting oil. To finish, we’ll gather for an oil tasting and sensory evaluation and offer suggestions for how to best enjoy our olive oil.

    Following the tour, please allow time to visit our retail shop where we feature our olive oil, wines, estate products and 80 Acres body care line. Or stay and taste our wines!

    Please Note

    We invite children ten years or older to join us on the Ranch Tour. We'll be walking on some uneven surfaces, so comfy shoes are in order. You can also bring along a small portable chair, if you'd like. The weather in our west Marin location can be fickle—we recommend coming prepared with options! The tour won't be cancelled due to mildly rainy conditions.

    We love our pets, too, but unfortunately, with the exception of service dogs, they have to stay at home. The local wildlife has been known to greet arriving guests—look out for wild turkeys, deer, foxes and jackrabbits (to name a few) from the lower gate all the way up to the Ranch. Please drive slowly (15 mph) after you turn off the main road.

    The Ranch is the McEvoy family's private residence, so please stay with your group during your visit.

    McEvoy Ranch is not responsible for injuries to visitors. Attendance and participation are at your own discretion.

    Cancellations made up to 72 hours in advance will receive a full refund. Please contact visit@mcevoyranch.com or call 707.769.4138 if your plans change.

    Lennie's Bio:
    Lennie Larkin started B-Side Farm after falling head over heels for flowers. She came to farming and flowers from a background in adult education. Naturally, B-Side Farm has quickly become an educational farm where Lennie not only grows and designs with flowers, but teaches others how she's doing what she's doing. B-Side Farm workshops are designed to meet every student where they're at and encourage them to dive a little deeper into the world of flowers - whether in the garden or design studio. The B-Side Blog is a growing resource for both of these arenas.

    Before starting B-Side, Lennie spent two years at the UCSC Farm and Garden, and then moved on to run the educational farm at Petaluma Bounty where she taught the public to grow crops for the local community for three seasons. She is the West Coast Director for the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers, and teaches flower farming and horticulture at Santa Rosa Junior College.
