“I drink too much. The last time I gave a urine sample it had an olive in it.”
"Except the vine, there is no plant which bears a fruit of as great importance as the olive."
“A toast to the Cocktail Party
Where olives are speared
And friends are stabbed.”
“Happiness is.....finding two olives in your martini when you're hungry.”
- Johnny Carson
“The whole Mediterranean, the sculpture, the palm, the gold beads, the bearded heroes, the wine, the ideas, the ships, the moonlight, the winged gorgons, the bronze men, the philosophers -all of it seems to rise in the sour, pungent taste of these black olives between the teeth. A taste older than meat, older than wine. A taste as old as cold water.”
-Lawrence Durrell ‘Prospero's Cell’
“The combination of olive oil, garlic and lemon juice lifts the spirits in winter.”
- Yotam Ottolenghi
We’re a little off the beaten path.
At least some people’s GPS devices have led them astray, though you should be ok if its been updated recently. If you’re coming from the north and want to see the village of San Miguel, go ahead and follow the GPS’s directions. It’s a little more straightforward (and just about as fast) to keep going to the Hwy 46 E. exit from Hwy. 101.
Take Hwy. 46 E. 4.9 miles and make a left across the highway (be careful ) onto Jardine Rd. Take the first right to stay on Jardine and keep going as it turns into Estrella Rd. Turn right onto Hog Canyon Rd. and follow that as it turns into Independence Ranch Pl. then hang a left onto Hawk Ridge Place. Look for the Boccabella Farms sign on the left.
Remember to call first or you’ll be stuck at the gate!
