Farm Efkarpia

Our Company

From generation to generation Efkarpia's broader family transferred the knowledge of crops, the love of the land as well as the insistent and continuous search of innovative ideas, new information and technology.
The fertile plains of Thessaly are considered to be the greatest potential grain production of the Greek peninsula, since the prehistoric years.

In Larissa, the center of the plain of Thessaly, Themistoklis Bliatsos chose to bring his family from the Peloponnese at the end of the 19th century right after the liberation of Thessaly from Turks.

Purchasing part of the Turkish oldest privilege by the Greek government in the region of Larissa as well as the konaki of the Turkish Agha -with the premises, warehouses, stables dovecotes etc- he  turned to become a landowner.

A man of action and hard work, Themistoklis Bliatsos loved the Thessalian land and imparted this love to his son George, who modernised the cultivation of cereals.

By the mid-20th century after the expropriation of the 1952 ,George's children, Themistoklis and Chris had purchased new land and had experienced rapid growth. Themistocles, who had been always a pionner, in collaboration with researchers from the Greek Farm School of Thessaloniki and the American Farm School, proposed and progressed into new crops.

 Under the supervision of Chris who had been a great engineer of agricultural machinery, they apply modern engineering for their cultivations using the most special machines of the era.

Tirelessly, the two brothers, who shared a unique love for the land and its fruits, grow not only cereals but also pulses, legumes, cotton, watermelons and posed a standard 150-acre estate with new pear varieties.
Fotini Bliatsou, Themistocles's daughter, and her son Lekkas Themistoklis continue with the family tradition today.

Our Philosophy
Melissa's Valley

Farm Efkarpia is a family business specialising in the cultivation, processing and packaging production of legumes, cereals, maize, but also herbs as well as their preparations.

The collection and processing of herbs as well as the packaging of all our products are made by hand. Handmade are also all our herb preparations following faithfully our cultural traditions.

In Farm Efkarpia nature's role is the most important for all our crops. The growing of our οrganic aromatic plants becomes naturally without chemicals or pesticides while the natural drying and the gentle and traditional treatment by hand just right after the moment of collection offer to our products their superb quality and uniqueness.

Farm Efkarpia offers certified quality products and as well as organic products. All our processes and packaging are certified according to ISO 22000:2005 while our organic products are certified by "Green Control".

Our personal reflection on "clean food", our love for the land and our contact with nature are the main reasons that made us producers and this became Farm Efkarpia's goal for all our products.
The estates and our head office is in Larissa, Thessaly, Greece.
