Lucero Olive Oil’s First Annual Spring Bloom Event

Grab your picnic baskets and join the Lucero Family for a day at the Mill.

Lucero Olive Oil proudly announces our First Annual Spring Bloom Event on Saturday, May 21st. Come and celebrate the olive bloom with a picnic and a tour of the groves guided by Dewey and Bobby Lucero.

Visit with friends and family and learn more about the olive bloom. If you’ve never seen an olive tree in bloom, here is your chance.

The event starts at noon at the Lucero mill and tasting room and will wrap up at 7 PM. In addition to tours of an olive grove there will be guided olive oil tastings and mill tours, a kid zone and the picnic.  Local artisan food vendors, Pedrozo Dairy and Cheese Company, Tin Roof Bakery and Bianchi Orchards, will be there offering their wares.  The horse and wagon grove tours start at 1:00pm and 2:00pm where Dewey and his Father Bobby will explain the bloom and answer questions about olive culture.  Each tour will include a demonstration of how to plant an olive tree. Tours will begin at the mill, travel to the grove then return to the mill at the end of the tour.  Space is limited so make your reservation early by calling 530-824-2190. The picnic with the Lucero Family starts at 3:30 and if you forget your lunch Billy’s Real Local Food will be offering BBQ’d food for purchase. The Tom Drinnon & Dueces Wild band will be filling the air with live music between 3:30 and 6:30.

Lucero Olive Oil is the result of four generations of farming and producing olives in Northern California. The rural community Corning, “The Olive Capital,” has some of the oldest olive trees in California, and many of these century-old trees continue to flourish in the Lucero family groves.
