...At The Olive Mill
Today I had the absolute pleasure of being invited on a gals-only-day-date with my Aunt to the Queen Creek Olive Mill
in...well, Queen Creek, Arizona, of course! It was a bit of a drive in comparison to my usual lunch spots
and boy, oh boy was it ever worth the jaunt!
Queen Creek Olive Mill is Arizona's only sustainable farm where extra virgin olive oil is produced. With over 16 varieties of olives grown pesticide free, the olive mill has developed from a darling grove, to having a restaurant, coffee roaster, and gourmet marketplace where you can find a modest blend of local and imported wines, natural soaps, stuffed olives, and of course their incredible selection of olive oils and balsamic vinegars - there are about 12 and you may taste them all.
Casual seating offered of the patio and on the lawn.
Blood Orange Sorbetto
Try them all - Lime, Chili, Chocolate, Blood Orange...even BACON!
Bruschetta and Four Peaks Beer!
One of the picture perfect gardens.
Make a day of it: Lunch, Tours, Drinks, Dessert, Shopping, and Coffee!
My family has been using their Extra Virgin and Chili Olive Oil for years - it's seriously AMAZING!
We called my Grandfather "Poppy", so I had to get this...I'm saving it for a special occasion. Maybe my birthday!
