Cultivation of products & Apiculture

Cultivation of products & Apiculture

At the end of 2007, with respect to planet earth, human beings and the environment, we began cultivating horticultural products, using organic methods. We continue our activities, by adopting mild cultivation practices.

 

Our cultivations

The choice of the products we cultivate is based on the market’s needs, the soil’s capability, as well as the microclimate of the region of Chaidari.

During the different seasons, we cultivate different types of products of the Mediterranean diet, such as high quality tomatoes, grown outdoors as well as in hothouses, cucumbers, different varieties of peppers and aubergines, zucchinis, green beans, herbs, spring onions, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, beetroot, etc. 

 

In 2013, in our efforts to further expand our activities, we began planting different types of trees (pomegranate trees, lemon trees, orange trees, peach trees, etc.) in order to create an orchard within our premises. Until today, we have planted almost 100 trees while during the year 2017, we planted 200 almond trees with a view to producing almonds in the future.

We also manage approximately 600 olive trees, from which we produce extra virgin olive oil of superior quality and low acidity. It is worth noting that the olive trees grow naturally and we are using mild methods of cultivation management

 

Apiculture

In 2013, with the assistance of a volunteer argiculturist, we started to produce our own honey. An area with various types of flowers provide our bees the valuable nectar and pollen.

In 2017, we increased the number of bees in our bee colony. Our bees have travelled around Greece in order to collect honey from lemon and orange trees, thyme, fir and pine trees.
