Summary of the Day  Who knew that the largest olive oil producer was nestled in Glenn County? California Olive Ranch is one of our key partners who produces the vast majority of olive oil in CA. Each year they host our FARMS Leadership students and showcase the many career opportunities they offer. This field day, while being virtual, was no different! Students were able to go on a LIVE tour of their facility hosted by Logan Jennings the Director of Operations, as well as learn the many different jobs that people hold at California Olive Ranch. Mary Mori, Director of Technical Services, then took over and walked to students through an official Olive Oil Tasting using the generous kit they provided to each student. It was so fun to see the expressions on students faces while tasting the various oils. If you would like to learn more and watch the field day unfold click HERE!
