Hillcrest Ranch Open House

Submitted By Kathleen Elliott and Tamie Harkins

Fans of Hillcrest Ranch Extra Virgin Olive Oil are welcome to attend our latest, and no doubt best ever, open house. This coming June 16, from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., come join in the festivities overlooking the gorgeous Sunol Valley. Along with free olive oil tastings, soap making demonstrations, self-guided tours of the historic orchard, visitors will no doubt see hawks soaring overhead in the wind currents. You might even catch a glimpse of Olive, one of our cats, as she slinks around surveying the place, casting a wary eye skywards.

Ice cream with olive oil - absolutely delicious - will be served, despite what you may think. Taste to believe! The event also includes the wares of other local artisans and homemade food, made with our own extra virgin olive oil, for purchase. Not to mention scintillating conversation with your fellow olive oil enthusiasts.

How do you get here? For a rare and wonderful experience, hike in! It's less than a mile, and it's a glorious walk. Park at the Foothill Road Staging Area of the Pleasanton Ridge East Bay Regional Park and then look for the map that will be tacked up on the bulletin board. The map will tell you how to get here. It's easy, and with all the olive oil and ice cream waiting at the top, it's very worth it, don't you think?

If you're not in the mood for a hike, no problem! Come to 11901 Foothill Road, Sunol and catch a ride with our van that will be making regular trips up the hill to the ranch.

If you have any questions, or just want to chat about how great olives are, call us at (925) 209-7702, or see what's up on our website, and our Facebook page,
