Oil Of Magnesia | Olive Oil Production Volos Magnesia
Organic Cultivation, planning and maintenance calendar have a very important part in our operation.
Most of our oil producing orchards are in the Pelion area whilst our eating olives are in the Kissavos area.
Most of the old-original trees are of the amphissa variety and over 2,000 new trees were planted of which 1,500 were of the Manaki, 200 new Kalamon, 200 Koroneiki, 50 Chalkidiki and 50 of the Arbequina varieties over the last 15 years, besides the new varieties over 500 wild trees were grafted.
The main reason for the long planting period was for soil suitability, water availability productivity as well as weather tolerance. On steep grounds, for oil producing trees, retaining walls were erected to protect against corrosion. Road and path facilities were also constructed for vehicular and safe access for the workforce.Wild flowers such as cistus (ladania), cyclamen, anemone, cedums, wild lavender, asters,oregano.thyme to name but a few out of 6,430 species for which Greece is world champion. The olive tree hosts and protects over 2,000 species and we aim to give a helping hand to this process and provide a feeding ground for bees for without them there is no world.Unfortunately man and wild pigs that dig out the ground in search of food and water have outgrown in number and hunting them down is neither an answer nor a solution.
The chief enemies are central and local governments.
