Join us on this tour of one of the first agricultural towns in Oregon. Head with us down to Yamhill County for a taste of incredible products in this region from Oregon's state nut, the hazelnut, to extra virgin olive oil, fresh produce and a chance to meet the dedicated farmers that make them. In this tour we will stop at three to four of the farms listed below. Stops are based on availability of the farms and seasonality. We try to accommodate your priorities and send out the final itinerary three days prior.
STOPS MAY INCLUDE:
- Get a guided tour of the Durant Oregon Olive Mill and introductory tasting of their four estate-milled extra virgin olive oils.
- Ken & June’s Hazelnuts began as a small business designed to roast, salt, and chocolate coat hazelnuts and package them in ready to eat bags for local hazelnuts lovers to enjoy. 20 years later the company has grown to a local brand name for the Oregon hazelnut industry. Take a tour of the orchards and meet Ken himself as we try an assortment of delicious hazelnuts.
