Olympian Myth Robust

by Amg Karabelas Ike

Let us introduce our family, the people behind all this. We, the Karabelas family, are fourth-generation olive growers, cultivating more than 5,500 family-owned olive trees. The average age of these trees is over a century, in olive groves all over the slopes and the Valley, surrounding Ancient Olympia. And we are not alone, in this! It is crucial to find growers sharing our passion for quality, and our genuine concern for the environment Our efforts and passion for quality, brought together a selected team of local farmers who contribute to our vision with their experience and thousands of olive trees. And we are very proud to help our local economy and give reasons to the younger ones to stay here and prosper. This team has two pillars: – A non-negotiable focus on premium fine food and extra virgin olive oil production, guided by quality, not quantity, and – A profound respect for the environment, adopting only sustainable-friendly cultivation methods. The “Olive Temple” by the Karabelas family: A brand new “temple” devoted to the sacred olive tree, in an ancient place where more than 70 temples already exist! Olympia, our hometown, is a place that everybody knows, wherever they may live. A top priority destination for many, it is blessed with thousands of visitors, every year. We planned this lifetime project with two ideas in mind: We wanted it to be an innovative, state-of-the-art premium extra virgin olive oil production mill with top-quality products exported all over the world, and An undisputed “must-see and visit” place for all olive oil lovers and healthy-living goers, of all nationalities. Forgive our lack of modesty but our vision is simple: we want our “Olive Temple” and our products to be the happiest, the most vivid memory someone has after his visit to Olympia. Or even from his trip to Greece! And we know exactly how to accomplish this mission: it is not our first time! Actually, we have been doing this for more than tens of thousands of times, every year! The Karabelas family is also the creator and owner of “Agriturismo Magna Grecia”, the leading point of reference for all incoming tourism to Olympia, from 2008 till today, and the top selection of Cruise companies and travel agents and planners.
