Mount Menikio, a magical place

The feed storage, livestock and production units are located in the valley of Prosotsani,under the shadow of mount Menikio.

The location was chosen purposefully. Not only because of its rich and fertile soil; but also because of the constant breeze of fresh air blowing down from a canyon ideally located approximately 10 kilometres to the North, which channels the wind creating a natural ventilation system. This is why the air is always fresh around the livestock unit, even though it houses a few thousands of sheep and goats.

But the biggest advantage of our livestock unit is that it is surrounded by 25 acres of our own organic-grown grass field, where our sheep and goats are free to roam and graze according to the time and the weather, protected within a safe environment.

At the same time, we always adhere to a strict feed schedule and stable quantities, creating the ideal conditions and maintaining them throughout the year, in order to ensure a steady and stable production of high-quality organic milk.

"Congratulations on your products, and most of all your yoghurt! Our baby eats your yoghurt since the age of 6 months! If we give him any other, he doesn’t have a bite! It’s unbelievable! We now buy them by the dozen so we don’t run out. Congratulations again, amazing taste and texture!"

Mina Rapti

"In a crisis-ridden Greece, businessmen like George Meleneklis prove that in order to build a successful business, you don’t need a huge capital. You need to set goals and respect your customers by offering them a high-quality, 100% local product."

Melina Kritsotaki

"It should be taken into consideration that the latest scientific researches show that cow milk is a product that is not compatible with our bodies’ needs. It is goat milk on the other hand which shows significant similarities to features of the breast milk, such as the ability to retain calcium within our body more efficiently."

Giorgos Lambiris

"Entrepreneurship in today’s Greece is in crisis. Yet there still are businesses that manage to shine, using fresh, natural and high-quality raw materials and exhibiting professionalism and creativity."
