Tours & Classes

Queen Creek Olive Mill is the perfect destination for your group, no matter their interests or background.  Located less than 50 minutes from Phoenix, we’re the perfect destination for a day trip, or a simple lunch gathering.

Olive Oil 101 Class

Our 30-minute “Olive Oil 101" Class is an educational experience designed to teach you all about olive oil, the different varieties of olives grown around the world, and what specific types we grow here for the sole purpose of creating our own hand-crafted Extra Virgin Olive Oils. You will also learn why Arizona is the perfect location for growing olives, we'll share our creative uses for many of our EVOO's, and you'll have the opportunity to ask questions to our Olive Oil Sapientes (Scholars of Olive Oil Production).  The “Olive Oil 101″ Class is conducted seven days a week throughout the day.  We suggest that upon arrival at the Mill, you purchase your tickets at the Retail counter and sign up for the next available class.  Please note that our classes start right on time, so plan your trip accordingly.
