Adopt An Olive Tree

Adopt your own, authentic, Olympia olive tree, today!

Olympia and olive trees: a connection very deeply rooted in this sacred land and its people.

The olive tree has been almost a synonym of Peace, Honour and Unity since ancient times. And it still is, today. This is mostly thanks to Olympia and the Olympic Games.

Olive oil, the juice of its fruits, was a treatment for the body and soul of athletes. And the olive tree branch was the ultimate prize for the “Olympionikes”, the victors, considered heroes and honoured in their Cities them, for life.

And now, you can also connect with this tradition!

Olive Oil Recipes

Here, in the heart of Olympia, an area protected for its uniqueness by the EU (PGI territory), also considered the heart of the Greek agricultural production, we produce, in our family-owned olive groves and mill, located a few meters away from the Ancient Olympia ruins, two extra virgin olive oil collections:

“Laurel & Flame” and “Olympian Myth”!

Both “Laurel & Flame” and “Olympian Myth” brands offer you a full range of extra virgin olive oil flavours and aromas, from a rather soft “feel”, up to a very full one. We designed this complete range, for you to pair with the food you create for you or your loved ones.

In the following recipes you will discover our suggestions, there for you to experiment with and enjoy!
