123 FARM

Olive Picking

Help us harvest our organic olives to be pressed into olive oil. Participants receive a gift certificate or festival ticket for every bucket harvested.


Olive Picking

Our Annual Community Olive Harvest at 123 Farm at Highland Springs Ranch and Inn took place on Sunday, November 12, 2023 from 9 am to 4 pm. The date for 2024 is TBD but may be around the same time.

The harvest promises to be good this year, but all our olives are hand-picked, so we are going to need all the help we can get. We always appreciate the help we receive from our local community, and we are inviting you to join us again this year. It is a fun activity for all the family even if you are limited by time. Every little helps.

For every bucket full of olives, participants will receive a gift certificate or festival admission ticket. Check in at the front of the lobby between 9am and 4pm to pick up your bucket and directions as to where to pick. We recommend that you bring your own gloves!

*Volunteers interested in attending the Christmas Nights festival must exit and re-enter the premises once the festival opens.
