January at the Farm

 

What do we do in January at an Olive Farm and Mill?

 

olives-in-mist-9

 

Celebrate the New Year and say thank you to all our guests, growers, and staff!

The biggest job of all!  Clean the mill

Certify all our oils as Extra Virgin, done and completed – all pass with flying colors!

Make decisions about competitions, what oils to what competitions and why

Make Limoncello from our wonderful citrus trees

Make homemade barrel aged manhattans – a treat in a few months

Put away (sadly) all the Christmas decorations as we loved our Ginger Bread House

Get ready for Super Bowl Sunday treats here at The Farm

Order seeds for the garden

Order trees and replant

Plant early seeds in the greenhouse

Build retaining walls

Plant new lavender in the new planting areas

Finish pruning and weeding around all the trees

Turn the compost

Clean the owl boxes

Watch the hawk cruse the canal for errant rodents (and hope it succeeds)

Apply compost to all the trees

Apply olive pits around the small trees

Take care of our chickens, a fun daily task

Clean the refrigerators and freezers Ugh!

Give tours to everyone who is on vacation and wonders what we do here in January

Get organized for 2017 by planning all of next year’s events, cooking classes, and activities

Watch our web site for all our 2017 classes and events

 

Are we done yet??? Anyone want to help?

 

Ciao,

Ann
