The Oil Tree Story
We would like to introduce ourselves. We are Natassa Kouretta and Jerry and Lexi Cox We founded and run the Oil Tree Co.
The Oil Tree Co. supplies top quality olive products from our own farm in the southern Peleponesse region of Greece. We also source other Greek products such as Greek honey and balsamic vinegar, all from local suppliers. We are always looking to expand our range and find exciting Greek products which are not easily found in the UK.
We would like to tell you how we came to be, and the story behind The Oil Tree Co.
After years of travelling in and around Greece, myself…Jerry, a tree surgeon and sailor bought a small derelict olive farm back in 2000.
Over the next few years myself and my wife Lexi restored all the trees and rebuilt the house. We also bought more land and trees with a view to building up the farm to a viable business.
During this time we met and became good friends with Natassa Kouretta, a neighbouring olive farmer. We decided to form a partnership and established The Oil Tree with a view to producing the best possible olive oil and olives.
Our groves are sited in the areas of Methoni, Pidasos and Mesochori, small historic villages in the coastal region of the southern Peloponnese.
All our trees are maintained to a very high standard and
consistently produce excellent crops of both oil and eating olives.
