Here visitors will be able to observe olive harvesting equipment and tools, along with information about all that happens to the olive tree, beginning with pruning in spring through flowering and harvesting in late autumn. With specific description about the olives, for example the Koroneiki variety, which is the most important variety for oil production and olive groves.

Detailed information on how this great Greek nutritional product is created from the olive tree will start with the growing process all the way through storage and bottling. Concluded by a thorough explanation of the history of olive oil manufacturing in Greece through time. With major focus on this particular regional area and the farm’s own family methods.

In addition, the process of managing and harvesting grapes will be explained. This includes the techniques and technology used for grapes collection, transportation and the crushing process for turning grapes into juice and subsequently into wine.
