About the Event:

In honor of being on the De Anza National Historic Trail, we’re inviting you, your family and friends to join us in finishing the harvest here in the olive orchards of the Purple Orchid Resort & Spa. We will conclude with lunch.

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 will have three 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.

Membership:

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):

  • $100 level – adoption of one Olive tree for 2018 and receive 1 bottle of Olive Oil after harvest
  • $200 level – adoption of two Olive trees for 2018 and receive 6 bottles of Olive Oil after harvest
  • $300 level – adoption of three Olive trees for 2018 and receive a case (12) of Olive Oil after harvest.

Our kick-off event allows you to receive this year’s harvest when you sign up for one of the three levels, plus next year’s harvest. That’s right, you get two harvests for the price of one annual membership!

Please remember to dress warm and wear appropriate shoes that may get muddy.

To become a founding member, call (925) 606-8855 or email derek@purpleorchid.com today.
