Planting thousands of fruit trees on Mazi Farm: transforming 5 hectares of degraded land into a commercial agroforestry operation.

Burning olive branches is a common agricultural waste management practice after the annual pruning of olive trees. It has become an important source of pollution in the Mediterranean. At Mazi Farm, we've found an alternative WIN WIN.

Traditional olive harvesting on Mazi Farm. Our olives were handpicked and 'cold pressed' within 24 hours in the traditional local mill. This preserved their nutritional value, taste and flavour! Our oil was then tested and found to have an acidity of 0.3%, which classifies it as 'Premium' Extra Virgin olive oil.

"If we take bees out of the equation, our lives will change forever" We are super excited to have received 40 beehives from organic beekeeper Charis Zois. We are creating an ecosystem for the honeybees, making sure they have a safe habitat far away from any bee-killing pesticides!

 

What if we could fix world hunger, deforestation, loss of topsoil, drought and nutrient deficient foods in 1 way? We can, and it is the future of agriculture. Check out a snippet of a typical day on MAZI FARM.

PRESS

This piece of land in Greece used to be a forested hillside that was cleared hundreds of years ago. Using cover crops, this group of millennial farmers have been able to transform the hillside into a blank slate of their own. They’ve been prepping to farm using agroforestry, which uses food-producing trees intermixed with other crops. You’ll be able to get pomegranates, lemons, figs, pistachio, olives, honey, artichoke, asparagus, grapes, blackberries, and a mix of herbs all from one spot. That’s some serious biodiversity.

Regain magazine

Tash & Etienne, our dedicated team members feature in the latest french Regain Magazine.

«Mazi, en grec, signifie "ensemble", car nous pensons que ce n'est qu'ensemble avec tout type de connaissances et de personnes que nous pouvons créer un système véritablement durable et meilleur pour tous.» Sur le terrain, Tash développe un programme de contrôle et et sit les changements de la qualité et la biodiversité du sol. Quant à Étienne, il cherche les meilleurs techniques d'intégration d'une production de légumes au sein du climat méditerranéen. A travers l'agronomie et la biologie, ils tentent de comprendre au mieux les écosystèmes et prennent la nature comme alliée plutôt qu'en ennemie. Pour pallier la monoculture, il leur semble nécessaire d'associer cultures et principes de succession naturelle afin de régénérer les biotopes.

The difference Mazi farm is attempting to make, is to develop a sustainable agricultural model which incorporates restoring ecosystems through imitating nature. They believe that we need to move away from conventional agriculture : monocultures, which decrease soil fertility and run great risk of diseases, annual tilling, which brings carbon from under ground to our atmosphere, over grazing, which does not allow natural forest areas to remain as such and the large abundance of pesticides and fertilisers : believing that nature has given us everything we need'
