Harvesting of olives and production of oil

decorative image

The production of olive oil is one of Greece’s most important agricultural activities – and has been for thousands of years. When the olives are ready, our guests go to the orchard, where the gardener demonstrates how the olives are harvested and then helps visitors to gather the fruit by hand with small rakes and olive nets placed on the ground. The olives are then crushed in the old stone olive mill using traditional methods in order to produce the season’s fresh oil. Whoever so desires may also prepare table olives (for eating) according to Kinsterna’s simple traditional recipe – and taste olive oil with various delicacies prepared by our Chef.
