In the beginning

I got this wild idea to start an olive grove. Patti and I drove over to Jackson County Florida where rumor was someone was growing olives and sure enough, Dan Mueller who says he traveled extensively in Italy and fell in love with olives has about 250 producing olive trees at Green Gate Olive Grove. I bought 6 trees and returned to Santa Rosa County with them. As of this writing they are still in the pots I bought them in.

I don’t see this as a huge money making business but something about learning a new skill and working with dirt and trees and olives appeals to me.
