J Welch Farms is a family-owned and -operated farm located just outside of Victoria. The Welch family planted a 120-acre olive orchard at their corn and cotton farm four years ago, and recently began producing cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil and other products. The company offers eight unique flavors of olive oil, three balsamic vinegars and a dipping spice. The locally harvested and bottled products can be purchased as individual gifts or J Welch Farms offers an assortment of gift set options to fit a variety of tastes. Flavors include Basil, Garlic, Rosemary, Mesquite, Jalepeño, Caliente Jalepeño, Lemon and Lime. The products are now available in gallon jugs and as a bag-in-abox, ideal for company cafeterias and kitchens. Additionally, J Welch Farms will provide private labeling for any gift products.

This time around the changes in the special events industry are astounding, and to say advances in technology are a driving force behind special events is an understatement.
