A day in Rawsonville- Willow Creek Olive Estate - Part 3

September 07, 2017

“The olive tree is surely the richest gift of Heaven. I can scarcely expect bread.”

-Thomas Jefferson

Personally, I found olives to be an acquired taste, a result of a childhood palate not inclined to bitter things, but once I was made aware of the complexities and flavor possibilities available within this one fruit, I was hooked. 

Willow creek perfects every aspect of this multi-faceted fruit and produces amazing Olives, Vinegar, Olive oils, Tapenade, Olive Pesto and Gift Sets. 

The two oldest buildings on the property, dating back to the seventeenth century and the 1840's have been restored and converted into the Shoppe, Tasting Room and Olive Deli where you can indulge in all things olive, to your hearts content. There are over 200 thousand olive trees in the surrounds, along with a startlingly beautiful backdrop, definitely a gem not to be missed.
