Where Are the Olive Trees?

The olive tees that produce the olives processed at the Queen Creek Olive Mill come from various sources, but most of the extra virgin olive oil being produced here comes from a grove of trees less than 1/2 mile from the processing facility.

Perry Rea and his family planted the olive trees in Queen Creek in 1997, and this was the first working olive farm and mill in Arizona. Unfortunately, you won't get to see the olive tree groves on your visit to Queen Creek Olive Mill. That isn't part of the tour.
