Who We Are

Just under the rock of Acrocorinth, amidst a sea of conventional grape monoculture plantations is a mosaic of small-scale organic farms.

Being one of the first regions of Greece where mechanized conventional agriculture took hold we are now farming in marginal circumstances. In Greece, only 1% of arable land is organic. And the austerity measures still affect 99% of the country population.

In Greece, late stage capitalism is testing new ways to create cheap and flexible labor forces. But we are testing new ways to resist, and to improve our conditions as dignified human beings.

This starts with preserving our food systems and natural resources, also to secure minimal social justice. In the area of Corinth we – a dozen of young and old organic farmers – have started a solidarity export project. A firm if undersized response to Greek economical situation. A response that can only be undertaken hand in hand with our customers abroad, as solidarity is key to the global crisis.

The Cooperative

We are a network of a dozen of young and old, small scale, low impact farmers. We cultivate organic produce all year round :

  • grapes
  • oranges
  • mandarins & clementines
  • lemons
  • olives
  • apricots
  • figs
  • pomegranates
  • wheat
  • vegetables
  • herbs

We also collectively process the fruit of our labour in a natural way, to produce :

  • lemonade
  • olive oil
  • grape syrup
  • raisins
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • tomato sauce
  • herb tinctures and more…

Our intention is to cultivate in a just and fairway, respecting ourselves and the earth and provide a living soil to the next generation.
