Farming

 

 

        Here the olive tree is exploited in different ways.:

 

~ the olives are picked by hand and taken to the mill to extract the precious oil (organic) ~

~ the leaves are collected by hand and carefully sun-dried, then sold as herbal tea ~

~ the young branches of this tree are used for basketwork ~

~ the dead or dry wood is used to heat the house and the ashes are used to make home-made detergent ~

 

        For herbal teas we also collect the following plants:

 

~ Sage ~

~ Rosemary ~

~ Thyme ~

~ Aquatic Mint~

~ Olive leaves ~

 

      As we use phytosanitary filtration, it is possible to buy the plants from us, or the seeds we collect from them.

 

The plants are the following : 

 

~ Reeds ( Phragmites communis ) ~
~
Scirpe ( Scirpus lacustris ) ~
~
Yellow Iris of swamps ( Iris pseudo-acourus ) ~
