The Kanellopoulos family
We live in Greece, we take care of our olive trees on our own. We love what we do and our aim is to share it with you.
Four generations of farmers, residents of a wonderful village of the Peloponnese called Ampelos. They all lived for almost a century, and were strong and healthy until the end of their life. Being a farmer is hard work. But none of them chose to do it in order to make their living; they did it because they believed this was the way to ensure a long and healthy life. They all loved mother earth, and felt grateful to feed themselves and their families with the goods it produced, while olive oil always had the most prominent place in their diet.
I was born and raised in Athens. I studied Communication and Mass Media and worked for many years on television as a reporter and presenter. At a certain point in my life, I decided to quit journalism and do something that could involve my kids and teach them something good.
