Αdopt  a Greek Olive Tree

What is included:
Now you have the opportunity to adopt your own tree from our olive groves, that our family has been cultivating for four centuries.
This way with a small subscription per year the annual amount of oil, produced by your tree is ensured.
You can also visit your olive tree during olive harvesting, for olive harvest and olive oil production or on  summer on your Kalamata vacation.
Additionally the name of the tree is established by only you, if you wish, (or you can choose a name from the ancient Greek names list at the bottom of the page), and it will be written on a wooden inscription, next to the tree.


A personalized adoption certificate with the name given to the tree by you, a photo of the adopted tree, the coordinates in order to find it, as well as a branch from it, will be sent to you fifteen days after adoption.

Our customers visit our olive groves from Taiwan


At the end of the year after harvesting is completed you will receive our beautiful adoption package containing 4 liters of extra virgin olive oil in 8*500ml uvag glass bottles (special for olive oil, that protects it from the  light) for FREE.  These bottles can have your own label with your name, and the name of the tree you adopted. The olive oil will be unfiltered just like when it comes out of the mill, without further intervention, it will be bottled in the above bottles. So it retains all of its health benefits, flavor and organoleptic ingredients to the fullest, and you'll get top-notch, truly detectable olive oil.


How do you help us?
You substantially support small businesses that work with small producers, while large producers with large-scale industrialization and low prices, who have concurred the market,  have made it unsustainable due to very low profits.
 In Greece which employs traditional forms of olive oil harvest, due to its soil morphology, you ensure the continuation of traditional olive oil harvesting methods and the extraction of olive oil.
You help both us and the trees maintain themselves for a year or two, depending on what you choose. In traditional cultivation, such as (manure, pruning, harvesting)
The olive trees adoption program has beneficial and positive results on both sides, by bringing people closer to the countryside by adopting and receiving their own extra virgin olive oil.
We hope to revitalize the interest in good agricultural practices by ensuring that the countryside is indispensable to the industrialization.
The positive results are the longevity of agricultural traditions and knowledge, good practices, and the preservation of the classic rural landscape.

150€ for one year adoption (+shipping)
