A Successful Olive Harvest!

We did it! 2019 was BIG harvest, but we got the job done with a dedicated team and the help of local, community volunteers! We collected 25,455 lbs of olives from our 1,800 trees, and have completed our pressing. Learn more about our Olive Oil & Olio Nuovo, and see photos from this year's harvest!

Friday Reflections

The wider Starcross community reaches around the globe! One way that we stay connected to our friends near and far is with Brother Toby's Friday Reflections.
