Isidoros in the field
Isidoros in the field
Isidoros used to live in Athens at that time and work at a hospital, while he sought to change his life and move permanently to the countryside of Crete.
Manolis, who is a master of many construction crafts, was focusing (up through today) on the cultivation of traditional varieties, without the use of chemicals, at the village where he comes from in the Messara valley.
Isidoros’s dream started to become true when he found a beautiful piece of land at the west end of Messara, not far away from Manolis’s village, when the latter continued to retain and share his precious seeds from traditional varieties, while he also took part in Melitakes, a group of environmentally-conscious people.
The deep, honest friendship that developed between them and their shared interest for preserving the environment and tradition brought about as a result that Isidoros joined Melitakes and started working with Manolis and the rest of the group.
We all dream of a world where food will be natural and available to everyone. We believe that in order to produce pure products we must use traditional seeds, cultivated in land with no chemicals, with respect towards the people who produce and consume the products, as well as towards nature and plantations.
We organize informative environmental actions that are designed both for children and grown-ups, while we are proud for the cleanliness of the products we produce, since when we offer them we would like to wish people to enjoy their meal and not test their luck.
Our 2 land plots can be visited by locals or visitors in Crete who would like to get acquainted to a different relationship to the land, but also taste healthy products as a result of that relationship, such as vegetables and herbs.
We are very pleased to invite you to walk in our plot, to get to know the plants that we grow with respect, to fill up our basket and taste them all together. Afterwards, we can all sit on the same table and enjoy, apart from the delicious Cretan snacks, the sceneries, the sounds and the smells that nature can still offer us.
We are certain that when the time for goodbyes comes, we will be setting a new gathering in the near future.
It’ll make us particularly happy if you can help us put the finishing touches to our work, and to make the fields even more functional. Read below to find out how!

Until then be well and stay smiling!
