Charles, Ellie and 6 year old Alexandra (Lexi)An English family live on an olive farm on the edge of the Ionian Sea in the Western Peloponnese, 20km west of Ancient Olympia. We have 400 olive trees, which produce approximately 2 tons of olive oil annually. We also produce a large amount of our own food from an extensive vegetable garden.Animals include chickens,ducks,turkeys,sheep,pigs,4 dogs and 3 cats. We are looking for help with the olive harvest, from roughly mid-November through until Christmas.
After Christmas is the time for general maintenance, cleaning land, rebuilding terraces etc. In return for your exertions, we hope to offer you a unique insight into the lifestyle of rural Greece, the traditional methods of olive husbandry, and especially the food, wine and culture of the Peloponnese.We are sorry to say that we would prefer that you were not vegan or vegetarian(during the olive harvest it is hard to cater for different diets)
