The Graber Olive House

...Only a week late! Last Friday we joined some homeschooling families from our church for a tour of the Graber Olive House in Ontario. I had never even heard of it before, but really enjoyed the tour!

One thing we learned is that most olives are picked very early and then soaked in lye to turn them black... Graber's, on the other hand, are hand-picked when ripe. They were really yummy!

I must admit, I spent much of the tour looking around at the old original barn-setting, dreaming of what an awesome renovated house it would make. Oh, it had such character!

And, Daniel spent much of the time doing double duty with the kids! (What a stud!)

If you get a chance, check them out. They have a really cute gift shop with some unique things, as well. And, if you like olives, these are awesome!
