Field Trip: Ojai Olive

Posted by Courtney on April 13th, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized.

Last week all my kids had spring break, so I tried to do a few fun things. One day, we went on a picnic in Ojai and then to Ojai Olive with some friends. My kids {ages 5, 7, & 9} thoroughly enjoyed the setting- rocks, trees, and sun-  the tour given by a very informative and sweet French woman, and the tasting.

I love to expose my children to where their food comes from. They got to see the trees, learn why we don’t eat raw olives, learn and see how olive oil is pressed, and taste a variety of different olive oils and balsamic vinegars. If you live in the Ventura County area, this is worthwhile field trip in a very pleasant setting. {Note: there are picnic tables if you want to picnic at Ojai Olive}
