orchard in pleasanton
One of the first commercial olive orchards in Texas, Sandy Oaks Orchards®, owned and operated by Saundra C. (Sandy) Winokur, lies just off of I-37, 20 minutes south of San Antonio. While best known for the olive trees, olive oil and the various olive oil and olive leaf based skin care products it produces, Sandy Oaks is also celebrated for its emphasis on hospitality and educating the public on the benefits and various uses of olive oil. Sandy frequently holds educational seminars, tastings of olive oils from around the world and cooking classes emphasizing the use of olive oil in cuisines typical of olive growing regions of the world. In homage to Sandy’s ancestors who were ranchers, Sandy Oaks also produces crossbred beef cattle.

The site with its South Texas climate and deep sandy soil is ideal for olives. The main orchard itself covers a 40-acre tract of the ranch, with some 11,000 trees planted among the massive live oaks dotting the property. A nursery holds up to 10,000 or more olive seedlings and shoots at any one time. Sandy stocks the trees to expand her orchard and to sell to others who would like to join in the adventure of growing olive trees. www.sandyoaks.com
