OLIVE GROVES
Although 123 Farm may be well-known for its organic lavender fields, the olive trees on-site are the oldest crop on the farm. Planted in 1854, the farm mainly grows Mission olives which is typically pressed to make olive oil.  The farm also has picholine olives, also used for olive oil and Manzanilla olives which are used to make table olives. Every October, the staff at 123 Farm / Highland Springs Ranch & Inn, as well as volunteers from the local community help to harvest the olives to press into olive oil. The olives are harvested and then taken up to Paso Robles, California in a refrigerated truck. The olives are pressed within 24-hours of being picked.  123 Farm bottles and sells the estate extra virgin olive oil, as well as uses it as an ingredient in some of its beauty products. The farm has a biodynamic approach to farming, and at times, feeds the organic olive leaves to its flock of sheep as a natural supplement to improve immune function.
