GIVEAWAY: Chaffin Family Orchards Olive Oil $59 Value

Sometimes, I wish I lived in California. I’d get plenty of sunshine, year-round farmer’s markets, and the chance to meet farmers like Chris Kerston of Chaffin Family Orchards.

Chaffin Family Orchards (pictured above) is a five generation family farm located in the Sacramento Valley in California. The founder, Del Chaffin, bought the farm just after his graduation from UC Berkeley in the early 1900’s. He wanted a location that could grow fruit 365 days a year. He found that and more. The farm has been harvesting and producing olives and olive oil for over 75 years.

They’ve got their system down. In addition to farming the olives organically, the farm employs livestock to do much of the work. Instead of mowing or disking the grass, they use sheep and cows to graze the orchard floors. Chickens eliminate bugs and fertilize while goats do the pruning.

In other words, these guys know how to do it right. And this week, they’re giving away SIX 375ml bottles of Extra Virgin Mission Olive Oil to one of my lucky readers!

    Signing up now! I knew this guy in high school who was *convinced* that olive oil was the ‘new’ wine as the Sonoma County wine market was getting saturated he was planting olive trees. (I grew up in California, moved to Montana where the economy is reasonable)
