From selling their harvest to large conglomerates and not knowing where their oil ended up, Threpsi decided to take matters in their own hands. It all started with grandfather Nestoras in the 1900s. A couple generations further his granddaughter Dimitra and her husband Dionisis are the ones taking care of the olive groves located between the villages of Pylos and Koroni. In close collaboration with local farmers from the region of Kalamata, they're now able to cultivate 25.000 olive oil trees.
