Spring is the most difficult time for the women of Gergeri Agricultural Cooperative "IDAIA LAND".

Baby artichokes, bulbs, capers, grape leaves, all must be carefully picked by the women, washed, rinsed, cleaned and properly processed and packaged.

They are a fine accompanying snack for salads and meals, or they can be used for the preparation of fine dishes.

No preservatives.

The producer

Idaia land women cooperative of Gergeri

Ten women from the mountain village of Psiloritis in Gergeri, having as a desire to keep alive the homemade recipes inherited from their mothers and grandmothers, which, as good housewives are practicing daily at home, decided to establish a cooperative that became their work and artistry.

In order to produce the Cretan "delicacies" from traditional recipes and promote the Cretan diet, they offer a wide selection of Cretan products & food, all with natural ingredients and with no preservatives

The cooperative has modern facilities for the preparation, production and standardization of products as well as a beautiful country tavern for the organization of small but memorable events.

Apart from the products that you will find in our online store, the cooperative produces a large variety of cookies, biscuits, breadsticks and traditional Cretan cheese/green pies that one can order upon request.

My Tip


Πρόκειται για πολύ μικρό αγγιναράκι. Μην σκεφτείτε καθόλου τη γνωστή άγρια αγγαθωτή αγγινάρα.

Όταν το πρωτοείδα, πραγματικά απόρησα, τόσο μικρό, πως μπορούν και το καθαρίζουν. Οι γυναίκες του συνεταιρισμού αφιερώνουν απίστευτα πολύ χρόνο για τη συλλογή και καθαρισμό αυτής της μικροσκοπικής άγριας αγγιναρούλας.

Από γεύση, πεντανόστιμο, ευωδιαστό και τραγανό!

Το συλλέγουν από τις πλαγιές της γύρω περιοχής. Πολύ θα ήθελα να βρεθώ άνοιξη στη Γέργερη, να κόψω κι εγώ αυτά τα άγρια αγγιναράκια και να μάθω πως τα φτιάχνουν. Τι λέτε, να οργανώσουμε μία τέτοια εκδρομούλα;
