Meet Stathis Xenos

Meet Stathis Xenos

Stathis Xenos, a farmer since 1985, converted to organic agriculture in 2016. He produces Capia sweet red peppers, and finds that plants that are cultivated and grown organically “contain less water and more nutrients and vitamins.” Stathis says he’s proud of his conversion to organic farming and sees a potential economic payback for his farm, which employs about 15 people. “The physical methods used for organic farming do not pollute the water resources and do not kill the beneficial insects,” he notes. “The market for organic products in Greece will have prospects if there is an increase in the supply at a reasonable price, as well as of point of sales.” Stathis Xenos's farm is in Skourochori, Ilia.
