After introductions, activity tables are just a short walk through the orchard. The field day offers an opportunity for attendees to move freely between tables interacting and learning about the latest olive research. Visit all eight tables to be entered into a raffle for a Long Meadow Ranch Gift Set. Lunch will be served back at the winery.
