Ligdas Farm

 image044  Ligdas farms are in the beautiful valley of the Acheloos River, at Kalyvia community, 10 km from the city of Agrinio. About 35-40% of citrus grown in this area ( Kalyvia Agrinio) are farmed organically. The farms belong to Ligdas family and are farmed by Sotiris Ligdas, his wife Sofia Ligda and their son Giorgos Ligdas.

The 136 acre farm consists 64 acres of Oranges (Navelina, Moro, Navel Late & Valencia), 20 acres of tangerines (Clementines, Ortanic & Nova) and 52 acres of rotating cultivations ( alfalfa, various vegetables and maize).

The micro-climate created due to the proximity to the Acheloos River, helps accelerate the natural ripening of the fruit. Ligdas farms provide us with some of the first organic Greek tangerines and oranges which we market in late October every year.

Fertilization of the cultivations in the farm is achieved by the use of manure from organic sheep, goats and pigs, organic plant compost and the application of rotation. This combination provides perfect nutrition to the plants, keeping the soil alive and healthy.
