What makes the agricultural products of Santorini unique is mainly the soil of the island. Among these products, the famous “fava” has an outstanding place. This plant is being cultivated for ages in Greece, as show the remains of fava seeds found during archaeological excavations on the island.
Our land, at the location Exomytis, near the picturesque village of Saint George, neighbors on the sand; during the month of December we sow the seeds in the blessed, fertile soil of our volcanic island.
For a whole winter the soil is washed by the rain, whipped by the winds, “cooled down” sweetly by the breeze; and then comes the sun of the Aegean spring to complete the maturing of seeds that were not watered at all during this time! We should also stress the importance of the organic process followed, which ensures the excellent quality of fava beans. Enjoy!
