Crafting Olive Oil on the Central Coast -- Karen Tallent
Come spend an afternoon in an olive grove and learn all about the production of olive oil. We will take a tour of an olive orchard and see the process at the facility on how the oil is actually made. You will learn about planting, cultivating and harvesting to milling, bottling and selling.

The Olive Grove owner, Karen Tallent, will tell you about the business cycle and local economics, the roller coaster ups and downs of farming & the marketplace.  You'll come to find out why these Central Coast farmers have found a wonderful niche for their award winning products. This is an interactive session that will involve tasting, pairing and lots of questions & answers.   You'll start with a presentation at the barn with some oil tasting. That will be followed by a catered lunch at noon with oil experimenting inside the barn, a tour of the farm, and then, finally, dessert and lingering back at the barn.  Your choices for the lunch are:

1)      Roast Turkey w/Cranberry Aioli

Fresh Roast Turkey, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Fresh Field Greens & tomato

Served on Focaccia Bread with Stein's Cranberry Aioli

2)      Roast Beef & Sharp Cheddar

Fresh Sliced Roast Beef, Sharp Cheddar, Tomato & Red Onion with Field Greens

Creamy Horseradish Spread served on Ciabatta Bread

Karen Tallent, owner of the Olive Grove says: "Our motivation is not primarily olive oil sales, but olive oil education, which is why we sign up every year to participate in the "Great Ag Adventure" in the Fall at the fairgrounds. Our audiences for these six 20-minute sessions are groups of 4th grade students bused in from all over the county to learn about farming and ranching for the day. They hardly have purchasing power but will better understand where olive oil comes from! We also participated again in the Mid State Fair for fours days this year."
