Our Trip to Greece

Greece! Wow, what an amazing country! I had the opportunity to go there this past fall to visit the olive groves and production facilities to see how olives supplied to our stores are grown, picked and processed.

One of the most exciting experiences on this trip was visiting the Kafalas Village in Sparta, Greece. During our visit to this quaint little village I was able to meet the people that grow the Kafalas Village Kalamon Olives. It’s a family tradition to work in the olive groves, and this was most definitely a close nit group. We met one man who has worked in the groves his whole life and now his son and granddaughter work with him, too.
