Olive Farming, is very ancient and over the course of millenniums each farming area has developed different techniques and methods, therefore Traditional Farming is comprised of hundreds of different methods. Today they all have one common great advantage, and one common great disadvantage.

    Advantage
In Traditional Farming there is a huge selection of varieties, which is an extremely important factor to the health of the olive industry. Availability of varietal selection is important for differentiation of the final product - the Oil.

    Disadvantage
Traditional Farming, even if in some cases can be considered beautiful, is inefficient and too costly! The most modern method of this category is the "Semi-Intensive" which is the most efficient and least costly one.
