The region has a very active economy with a focus on agricultural farming and processing. Olive farming, in particular, plays a great role in the local economy as nearly two-thirds of olive production in Muğla Province come from Milas. The soil is very suitable for olive farming and, more specifically, for the Memecik variety of olives. Memecik olives are unique in the Milas region. They are of medium size with an oval shape and a small nipple at its end. They are considered to be higher in antioxidants compared to almost all the other Turkish olives and many international ones too. It is not by accident that Milas olive oil has been registered by the European Union as PDO and has the relevant certification. Milas has a long history of olive oil production. Historical sources indicate that olive cultivation began in Anatolia approximately 6,000 years ago. During the Ottoman period, the region was very famous for its olive oil and exported large amounts of it, which significantly boosted its economy.
Our Olive Groves
It took us quite a bit of traveling and searching until we finally found exactly the land that we were looking for. Here’s a little bit about our orchards. Our olive groves are perennial and the method of farming that we use is purely organic. We are making every effort to obtain the relevant certification too. As true environmental advocates, we make sure that our methods truly respect nature, the local community, and everyone involved in the process. Our land covers 300 acres and splits into 4 different orchards.
