If you work with commercial olives in the North Coast, please join us for the North Coast Olive Field Day! Activities are just a short walk through the orchard to McEvoy Ranch’s Milk Barn. The field day offers an opportunity for attendees to move freely between tables interacting and learning about the latest research and programs for olives. Visit all eight tables to be entered into a raffle for a McEvoy Gift Basket. A light breakfast with coffee and lunch will be served.
**This is an outdoor event, please wear appropriate shoes for the field and bring a hat**
Registration is required, and will close at 50 registrants.
