The Olive Tree of Corfu, having today an annual production of 75.000 tons, is called “ianolia”and belongs to the category of the olive trees that produce olive oil. Although it is small in size, it is very tasty and for this, it is also preferred in a lot of European markets.

The peculiar weather conditions in Corfu (heavy rainfalls and mild temperatures) encourage the existence of rich vegetation. A lot of wild flowers embellish the countryside of Corfu and offer rich food for the bees, which remain active for a long period. The honey of Corfu is a traditional product, which is given to consumption directly by the producer.

The fishery has a very important place which is connected with the tradition and the life of the place, where every form of fishing technique is applied, from the traditional “pyrofani” up to the piscatorial flotillas, the gri – gri, the caiques, with nets e.t.c.
