Did you know that Cypriots harvest more than 10 thousand tons of olives every year?!
The island has a long tradition of cultivating olive trees, going thousands of years back!
No wonder, since as native Mediterranean trees, olives thrive in Mediterranean climates,
with long, hot dry summers and mild winters.
So the growers’ most exciting time of the year begins in October:
The harvesting season! Lasting until January, this is the most active season of the year, that brings a lot of sweat,
but also a lot of smiles to the faces of growers – both professionals and amateurs who see this as their favourite hobby!
Wondering how to begin harvesting the olive trees from the fields and make your own olive oil.
