Farming


Our land produces many crops. In the past, the monks of this monastery planted wheat to supply all the nearby monasteries. We have about 30 hectares of land that is planted and cultivated. We are few in number but we manage the land with the help of workers using the old agricultural techniques of the region.

  

Our land is planted with a variety of fruit trees: olive trees, almond trees, vines, apple trees, cherry trees, pear trees, fig trees, ...  We also plant vegetables in every season: spinach, grain, wheat, onions, potatoes, garlic ... in winter. Cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, melons, ... in summer.

 

 

Our goal is to be able to be self-sufficient. For the rest we sell most of our crops in the village.
