Not only in the region of Gavalou but also in the wider area of Makryneia, we meet cash crops and old olive groves characterized by old tall trees with large diameter of trunk. Moderate cultivation methods are applied on those groves ( without the use of fertilizers ) which some are abandoned due to the ground conditions. The traditional old olive groves nourish plenty of animal species. These groves are structurally supported by dry stone walls forming terraces. The olive oil coming from these groves is highly organic of special texture and aroma classified as “ one of the best”.
