De Anza Olive Oil Club
We are pleased to announce we will be resuming the De Anza Olive Oil Club. If you purchased a membership for 2020 or 2021, that membership will be valid for this year. For new members and those inquiring we would love to welcome you and have you be a part of the Club. Annual membership to the De Anza Olive Oil Club entitles members to a year with hands on events in the orchard, from pruning to harvesting to your own allotment of Olive Oil. The Club provides great outdoor activities for families, friends, individuals, as well as team building opportunities for corporations. We look forward to a great harvest this year and hope you can join us!
About the Club:
In honor of being on the De Anza National Historic Trail, we’re inviting you, your family and friends to join the De Anza Olive Oil Club!
You will learn about the Spanish Manzanilla Olive grown throughout California which was brought over from Spain and planted during the early Mission Days of old California and along the De Anza Trail.
Annual membership of the De Anza Olive Oil Club entitles members to experience olives from first bloom to harvest, adopt an olive tree, and participate in events throughout the year with olive orchard operations from pruning to the harvesting and bottling of extra virgin olive oil. We offer four levels of annual membership which all include participation in three seasonal events (Spring, Summer, Fall), focusing on education and hands-on learning of the Manzanilla Olive including pruning in the spring, pest-control in the summer and, of course, harvesting in the fall. The history of olives in California will be covered throughout the year.
Each annual membership allows members to plant their stake next to their adopted tree(s). All events include a family-style meal for up to 2 adults and 2 children (there is a nominal fee for more children):
- $150 level – adoption of one Olive tree for 2022 and receive 2 bottles of Olive Oil after harvest
- $225 level – adoption of two Olive trees for 2022 and receive 6 bottles of Olive Oil after harvest
- $295 level – adoption of three Olive trees for 2022 and receive a case (12) of Olive Oil after harvest.
