GERAS Organic Olive Oil

Our organic olive oil is produced in the island of Lesbos, in north eastern Greece amidst the Aegean Sea. It is a mono-varietal and single farm product. Olive trees are exclusively grown and harvested for this purpose in the 62 acre farm (or “tsamliki”) of Grigoris Gliglis, which he inherited from his father, Kostas. Carefully selected olives are hand-picked every year from each one of his 3000 trees. His farming is based on the principles of ecology, fair-trade, personal commitment and sustainability. From his farm to his olive oil, the quality is unmatched. The olives are collected by hand and with sticks, making the process more laborious and tiring but ensuring optimal health for the tree branches. The olive trees are accompanied by a lavender plantation, making a magnificent purple - golden green scenery.

The sea element is the distinguishing feature of our oil. The farm is in total contact and in perfect balance and harmony with the sea. The trees are rooted inside the salty terrain, their leaves breathe the sea breeze and the soil which they feed from abounds with sea minerals. This is what makes our olive oil unique and its quality supreme. This, in combination with the complete absence of chemical fertilizers and the regional microclimate define a singular, organic, extra virgin olive P.G.I* Mytilene.

Organic Herbs from Syros Island, The Cyclades

Summer visitors see the Cyclades as rainfed islands. Minimalistic beauty, dazzling white and blazing sun. However, the truth is before our eyes. Cyclades rank among the richest places in biodiversity globally. The unique conditions of the Islands, meaning the glowing sun, the Aegean Sea breeze and strong winds, create an impressive wealth of herbs, containing outstandingly high levels of essential oils. Hence, the unexpected strong aromas, flavours and colours of the Cycladic herbs.

Herbs brand the lifestyle in Syros, the capital of the Cyclades island complex. They keep a leading role in the local cuisine, ceremonies and social events, remedies, decoration, and so many more. Working our land, enjoying our herbs, while appreciating their important part in our everyday life, we realized how lucky we were to live in such as blessed place. Thus, the idea of growing, collecting, drying and packaging our own herbs was born. In autumn 2012, we, a group of friends, founded the Cyclades Organics.

Moreover, we adapt plants from other places in Greece to our special climate. As a result, the biodiversity of our ecosystem alters the balance making the aromas stronger, the flavours more intense.

Loving and respecting nature, we marry tradition with modern expertise to cultivate our oregano, thyme, sage, rosemary, marjoram and aloe vera. We use traditional and natural ways as possible to grow, harvest, process and package our herbs. The authenticity and quality of our products as organic, as well as our procedure and practices meet the standards of the EU regulation.

But, we do not rest. We always experiment, in search for more.
