Clay Oliver, owner and founder of Oliver Farm Artisan Oils, grew his first crop of sunflowers for oil production in 2012. From there, more oils followed, and Oliver Farm Artisan Oils quickly expanded.
The Station 31072 features Oliver Farm Artisan Oils and flours alongside a selection of carefully curated goods from other small family operated farms and businesses. Additionally, there is a rotating collection of local art on display, including handmade pottery and paintings, and handcrafted furniture. Oliver says, “Know that when you shop with us, you are supporting someone directly, and we are offering you what we feel is our very best.”
While you’re stopped at The Station 31072, you can also purchase a pass to the sunflower field. Sunflowers will be in full bloom between late June and early August, depending on their planting date, check out Oliver Farms Facebook page for more details.
With a pass, folks are welcome to take pictures, pick the sunflowers, and even enjoy a picnic. You can stay as long as you want and enjoy the scenery while gathering beautiful blooms. Dig a little deeper into the sunflower oil scene and purchase a ticket for a guided tour of the field and oil press. The Station 31072 is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and located at 110 7th Ave W, Pitts, Georgia.
