Efthimiadi Estate is managed by Iris Efthimiadou & Sam Lord, who met while working in London. In October 2008, Iris returned home to honour her father’s memory by tending her family’s land. Together with her English fiancé, Sam, they have embraced time-honoured organic methods for sustainable agriculture, proudly producing the finest quality, fresh products from their cherished trees, with a commitment to quality, the environment and support for the local, rural economy.
Founded by Iris’ late father, Euripides Efthimiadis in 1974, the estate was chosen for its stunning position in the foothills of the Menikio mountains and specifically for its perfect growing conditions for olive & nut trees. His passion for good food & nature, led him to plant the estate with olive, almond, fig, walnut & many fruit trees, such as peach, pear, apple, pomegranate & cherry to name a few. Euripides devoted all his spare time to the grove & his family, planting a rare collection of 2,500 olive trees of legendary varieties from the four corners of Greece. A lake was created, fed with fresh mountain spring water to irrigate the young olive trees. He fully believed in an organic approach to cultivating olives, but unfortunately didn’t get to live his dream of sharing the fruits of the grove with others. It is this legacy that we have returned to fulfil, embracing his passion & work ethic, to create fine olive oil, table olives and tapanade from our cherished trees. The grove has 2,500 olive trees over 7 hectares (17 acres) at 250m above sea level. Olive varieties include Chalkidiki, Manaki, Koroneiki, Kalamon, Volos, Amfissa and Megaritiki. All electricity needs are provided for by 32 solar photovoltaic roof panels and all surplus power generated is automatically fed into the national power network.
