McEvoy Ranch invites you to join olive farming expert Samantha Dorsey for a full-day workshop which will outline the special considerations for pruning productive, fruit-bearing olive trees and help you finesse your techniques.
Cost: $175 per person
If you have olive trees or are considering planting them, this is a must-attend workshop conducted by one of the industry’s top experts. An indoor lecture and discussion covering timing, use of tools, maximizing fruit production and other critical techniques will be followed by lunch prepared by Ranch Chef Mark Rohrmeier in the McEvoy Pagoda. The workshop will continue in one of our orchards for further instruction and practice of techniques. After the workshop, join us in our Ranch Shop and Tasting Room for a 3 wine tasting flight with olive oil and local nibbles.
McEvoy Ranch is located at 5935 Red Hill Rd, Petaluma, CA 94952. The speed limit is 15 mph or less once you turn off the main road, out of respect for our neighbors and the local wildlife. McEvoy Ranch is a private residence; please stay with your group during your visit. Please come prepared to spend time in the field – we will be on uneven surfaces and temperatures/conditions may vary. We will have a few extra pruning tools on hand, but please feel free to bring your own. Dress and footwear should be appropriate for outdoor orchard conditions.
