We have been growing olives and producing top quality organic olive oil on our family farm on Naxos for 30 years. We cultivate our trees on traditional stone terraces and water them with hand dug channels. Guests will learn all about olive cultivation , and participate in watering, pruning, repairing dry stone wall terraces and harvesting in the Autumn. There are tasks all year round so don't be sad if you can't come at harvest time.
Our quest for perfection has resulted in our joining the "Aristoil" elite producers of olive oil in Greece. All of our olive oil production is monitored for quality by the University of Athens Department of Pharmacognosy. This year's crop earned the Silver Standard for high phenolic olive oil at the Olympia Health and Nutrition Awards.

This tour was absolutely fascinating (and this is coming from someone who has very limited interest in olive oil). Sophia and Costa were wonderful hosts and provided knowledgable guidance for over three hours. Also, the food at the end was delicious in an incredibly simple way. Costa’s homegrown potatoes were a highlight. I’m looking forward to booting my friends to tears with my newfound olive oil knowledge…I won’t spill the beans on here, but definitely go (and pack another layer for dinner)

We found the tour of the farm extremely interesting, and the olive oil tasting with Costa & Sophia was the perfect way to cap it off. A great experience for anyone who enjoys learning about organic farming or the local history. Highly recommend!

This is a great experience in the heart of the Naxos hills. You really get the feel for a small local farm and village. The olive oil tasting and snacks were lovely and Sophia and Costa were excellent hosts.

Had a really nice time touring the property and learning about the olive trees, the process for harvesting the oils, what makes them extra virgin, and so on. During my visit we were able to say hello to the donkeys and feed them! Such a lovely tour with a small group of visitors. Highly recommend this tour for folks wanting to explore other sides of the island.
