Special Events

Olive Fest

When: Sat., Nov. 15, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. 2014

Share the Bounty will include a special menu using local ingredients— many of which will come from the orchard’s garden— and locally crafted beer and wine in Sandy Oaks’ brand new wine tasting room. There will also be opportunities to take a step back from the food and drink and educate yourself on the olive growing and harvesting process. Education stations will be set up with activities centering around planting and cultivation techniques, tutorials and cooking demonstrations. Live jazz provided by the Sandy Oaks Jazztet. Activities and games for the kids are planned, making this an extremely family-friendly event in the cool fall weather on the beautiful, well-tended grounds of this working ranch. This year’s harvest has produced what the experts are saying will be the most flavorful and complex olive oil ever produced at Sandy Oaks — the public will be able to appreciate not only the culinary value of Texas olive oil, but also stock up on products such as olive jelly, olive butter, olive leaf tea and a full line of skin care, soaps and beauty products made from the olives and oil at the ranch.

Price: $30 Adults, $15 Children
