About us

Our great-grandparents began cultivating olive trees and producing olive oil and table olives. As this tradition passed from one generation to the next, we learned to nurture the fertile lands that produced such fine fruit. Our respect for more than 100 years of tradition has prepared us for today’s challenges and instilled a commitment to the land and its future sustainability. Our strongest allies have been Greece’s bright sun and the fertile land of Sparta, on the Peloponnese. Continued dedication to vertical integration, best practices, sustainable cultivation with soil enrichment and improved bioclimatic conditions of our region through water conservation and elimination of pesticide and chemical use, we are confident that a new, greener, and healthier product will grow for generations to come.


Our Vision

To sustainably cultivate the land while engaging the community to help provide economic growth through the export of a fairly harvested, nutritious and high quality, authentic Greek agricultural product.


Our Values 

Passion

Agricultural sustainability and the commitment to high quality paired with the insistence that every step in the right direction makes a difference, no matter how small.

Integrity

A promise to continue to invest in best practices, to share them with our producers and community, to be transparent in pricing and payments, to return the choice and the power to the producer.

Innovation

A continued drive for the newest technology and methods to secure food quality and safety, to monitor utility usage and decrease our carbon footprint, to reuse, recycle and to return to the land what it has given us.

A commitment to local employment, continued education for both employees and producers, free educational seminars and programming to increase adoption of best practices and improved outcomes as a long-term dedication to the land and its people.
We do not use dangerous chemicals, pesticides or mechanical collection methods and have begun the transition to electric powered tools and machinery, instead nurturing our fields with care and harvesting them by hand to ensure the finest flavor and highest nutritional value possible.
In 2020, we added a 500kw solar panel system to our roof on a net metering basis, providing green power to operate our facilities with all excess generation sent to our local grid.
