Sat., May 13 – Start Mother’s Day Weekend at Sandy Oaks Orchard

You’re invited to kick off Mother’s Day weekend with us at the orchard. Join us on Saturday, May 13th, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Join our tour at 11:30 a.m. with Sandy Oaks owner Sandy Winokur.

Stay for lunch and pair it with a free glass of wine.

Make your selection from a menu of delicious salads, soup, sandwiches or a special pasta dish. Enjoy our signature olive bread with your meal.

This fresh-baked bread is incredibly delicious and is made daily in our kitchen.

The topper to your visit will be a small gift from Sandy Oaks for Mom. At Sandy Oaks, we guarantee to make her feel as special as she is!

Got bugs?

Do you have ants or other undesirable insects damaging your green spaces and eating their way through your garden?

Our Saturday tour will be followed by a free workshop at 1:30 p.m.. The seminar will feature the use of herbs as a safe and natural insecticide. Sandy and her team have put their heads together and developed a natural chemical-free formula to get rid of these destructive bugs. This weekend our free workshop will cover how to make natural herbal insecticides. We’ll explain which herbs to use and why, learn to combine the herbs and assemble the bunch as if it were a Bouquet Garni concoction.

New Saturday Workshops At Sandy Oaks

Starting May 20, we will skip tours of the orchard to enjoy free workshops. It’s fun to take everyday items and make something useful that won’t hurt the environment. That’s the goal of every farmer who cares. Check this page or our Facebook page to get updates or to learn more about the schedule of workshops. ~ Sandy Winokur

Sandy Oaks Education Blog: From Frost to Recovery

The 2016-2017 winter hit the orchard really hard. The temperature plummeted into the low 20s for several hours.

The trees located in the lowest parts of the orchard were hardest hit. Luckily, most of our trees, though damaged by the frost, did survive.

This event led Sandy to rethink the layout of the orchard. It’s also an opportunity to develop new strategies on how to best optimize the areas not suitable for olive trees.

Through the year and all the way to the next harvest, we will chronicle the recovery of the orchard, and share what we’ve learned with you. Read more…

We look forward to seeing you soon!
