In Centaurs, groves are produced the extra virgin olive oil of premium quality, a biodynamic farming product, certified by the TUV Hellas organization. The trees are grown on virgin soil in the plateau Folois in Ancient Olympia. The varieties grown are koroneiki, wild olive, and Olympia. After harvesting the fruit, the crushing of olive branches is done, as a result, to produce an organic substance that offers organic fertilization of the soil.
The variety “Olympia” is the local variety that grows in areas of Ancient Olympia and Gortynias. Characteristic is the significantly higher content of (5 to 10 times) in beneficial substances, compared with the remaining olive varieties. It is a variety that is found in the region for more than 1500 years.
