Did you know that the oldest olive tree in the world is over 2000 years old?
This day represents the beginning of your common path in life. There couldn’t be a better chance to show your love to the people that are invited.
It was one of the most exciting days for us, from the moment we started! The journey of our extra virgin olive oil, completed the final step to reach your family table, the bottling.
On the Saturday of Lazarus women of Lesvos bake “Lazarakia”, little sweet buns filled with dried grapes and fοrmed in man shape, that symbolize the Resurrection of Lazarus. They were also given as a treat to children that were singing Lazarus’ carol door to door.
The olive is one of the oldest symbols in the world and one of the most significant in the Mediterranean. That's something completely natural because it is deeply connected to our society from the ancient times.
It is a variety that we exclusively find in Lesvos and that's why some people call it "Mytilinia". Kolovi, covers the biggest part of the olive cultivation on the island, and that's why our groves carry a special indication of geographical position.
Today we celebrate something so fundamental, that most of the times we take for granted and neglect. Water covers 70% of our earth and quenches our soil so that life can flourish! We protect our water from pollution and never spoil it, because it helps our trees grow and it's the basic element of our very existence!
Carnival traditions in Greece are a living thing. Their origins go way back in Greek history, as one of the oldest forms of rites devoted to fertility and nature. The word Apokria, as Greeks call it, literally means ¨without meat¨, and it’s associated with the Orthodox Lent period that follows.
For many people this is the ultimate Greek food! For others it is considered a meal full of vitamins and high nutrinional value. It satisfies one’s hunger and at the same time benefits our health. All the above are elements of the Greek bean soup, the so called “Fasolada”.
