Olive grove of our organic olive oil
Where does our organic olive oil come from?
We have met Yanis, who takes care of the olive grove of our organic oliv oil of the family Melissakis. On this grove, sometimes the Sehers are passing to eat the herbs. The biological groves have to be closed with a fence. The trees are not watered and the grove loos very wild. During the rain season (February-March) Yaris burns cut branches and animal excrement to naturally fertilize the trees (see picture 2).
This beautiful olive grove between Duliana and Gavalohori takes us into an unreal Worts, like 50 years ago, the techniques didn’t change.
According to the guidelines of the DIO (organism for organic certification) our organic olive oil is extracted from the olives, a perfetly mild olive oil with a slight grassy taste, which is so typical for olive oil from Apokoronas.
