WHAT’S THE STORY ON OLIVES HERE??
Visitors and locals alike may marvel at some of the gnarled and venerable olive trees throughout the Santa Ynez Valley and wonder at their age and why they were first planted here. The Museum’s Historian, John Copeland, not only knows the heritage of the orchards, but produces various olive oils today on the property he and his wife Shannon own, known as Rancho Olivos.
John and Shannon will host a tasting of their current Rancho Olivos oils as they entertain with stories of valley history, modern olive farming and virgin olive oil production. The Sunday, June 11th pop-up follows the popular Saturday, June 10th Jazz and Olive Festival in Los Olivos.
