*** ASKLIPIA VILLA OLIVE PICKING EXPERIENCE ***
The Asklipia Villa is indeed a place of serenity all year round surrounded by natural beauty of pine trees forest and olive trees.
Visitors can tailor their experience to just olive picking or include something extra in order to get themselves and their families more familiar with light farming activities.
Please feel free to view some relevant pictures in the photo gallery!
*In order to experience the olive picking in the Asklipia Villa you simply need to contact the host and book a week within the olive picking season.
At Asklipia Villa we grow our own organic seasonal vegetables, fruits and produce one of the finest quality olive oil.
Our olives are harvested with such care, free of chemicals, picked at the right time and processed within 24hrs, which consistently has provided an extra virgin olive oil of around and even less than 0.5% acidity level!
We have approximately 240 olive trees, mainly of two kinds of olives: the Manaki and the Koroneiki.
The Manaki olives are larger than the Koroneiki but are also relatively small, smooth, darker brown in colour and their picking season is around October/early November of every year.
The Koroneiki olives have a mild fruity aroma and they are small, smooth and green in colour. Their picking season is mid-December to mid-January.
Our olives are indeed excellent for producing olive oil as you need between 2.5 - 4.5Kg of olives (depending on the year's harvest) to produce 1Kg of olive oil. Typically, you would need 8-10Kg of olives in order to produce 1Kg of olive oil.
After picking the olives, you will experience the production of olive oil in the local small factory and have a taste straight from the tab of the warm olive oil you just helped produce.
The olive picking experience in the Asklipia Villa can be combined with other daily light farming activities such as:
- Collecting the ripe vegetables in a basket, cleaning the soil and planting with your own hand tools at the greenhouse.
- Picking all sorts of different organic fruits from around the land such as lemons, mandarins, oranges, plums, grapes, pomegranate, figs, pears, apples, apricots, black/white berries, cherries, etc.
- Collecting chicken and goose eggs from the little hen house. Feeding the chickens and gooses, cleaning of the hen house and changing the geese's little pool water.
We have had families visiting us and getting involved in these sort of light farming activities.
The experience of collecting and eating your own organic vegetables and salad is indeed unique.
The children were always very excited with the hen house activities and in particular, they were very impressed by collecting the eggs.
Both children and adults have loved watching the geese slowly going back to their little pool once the water had been changed and then starting to dive and clean themselves with their unique natural moves.
