The farms’ history began in the late 18th century when a small olive press was built nearby the olive grove. From the middle of the last century Dr Kavadias began his life-long work to transform the farm into something spectacular and it has been passed down the generations.
Dr. Kavvadia was an orthopaedic surgeon who lived on the island of Corfu many years ago. The Doctor’s greatest passion was producing olive oil from his centenarian olive grove, from a local variety known as Lianoelia. He had a feeling that when olive oil is produced correctly, it acquires therapeutic properties. To achieve this, the doctor treated his olive grove with the utmost respect, using only natural ways of farming. His techniques, today, would be called a blend of permaculture and sustainable farming. He knew that only strong, healthy, and happy olive trees will produce fruit with the exceptional characteristics that he sought. As well as the Lianolia variety, Dr Kavvadia now offers their Thiako variety, a rare and unique blend that is indigenous to Corfu.
Since 2012, the farm is now the home of the award-winning Doctors Kavadias olive oil. Most of the olive trees in the farm are centenarian, some dating back to the Venetian times, almost 400 years ago. These trees bear smaller crops due to their age, and are scattered on mountainous terrain, making harvest challenging but worth the reward.
