Our U-picks for curing olives will be Saturdays, October 13 and through November 10 from 9am to 12 pm and the curing class will begin at noon and will last about an hour. Bring the family and friends out to experience a little bit of Tuscany right here in Aptos. We have the harvest buckets and all the recipes you require to cure your own olives. The price is still $3.50 per pound for fresh olives.

Never cured your own olives? No problem. Curing classes will be held at the end of each U-pick session and last about 1 hour. Roger will have a variety of cured olives for you to try to see what you like.

Classes cost $25 per person and include one pound of olives that you pick yourself prior to class and a one quart mason jar to cure them in. Go to our online store to reserve your spot, attendance is limited and these classes often sell out. Classes start at noon so be sure to get there a half hour early to pick your complimentary pound or come earlier if you think you’d like to pick more olives to take home.

Have a group of friends or family interested in doing a curing class together? We can do that.
