Queen Creek Olive Mill is an Agriturismo experience at its best - we've got something for everyone. Our daily tour offers something only a working olive mill can provide here in Arizona. Even if you know a thing or two about olive oil and how it is made, we guarantee you will learn something you didn't know. Get up close and personal with our olive press, and if you come at the right time, even see it in action! 

Our gourmet marketplace is a locavore's dream. From our vast selection of Arizona made extra virgin olive oils, to our mouthwatering balsamic vinegars and reductions, to our tasty stuffed olives and gourmet tapenades, it's safe to say we have it all! We also carry a selection of noteworthy local purveyors such as Hayden Flours Mills, Cerreta Candy Company, Mediterra Bakehouse, Superstition Coffee (our in-house roastery) and Valley Honey Co.  

You can also experience our Italian inspired Eatery when you visit. We use local and garden-sourced ingredients to create our healthy and delicious cuisine and, more importantly, showcase how extra virgin olive oil can be used in your kitchen everyday.
