Anydro Tours with Oikonomou Petros and his partners

EXPLORE THE UNIQUE FARMING SCENE OF SANTORINI, TASTE TRADITIONAL WINES AND LEARN HOW TO COOK AS A LOCAL!

Who is Petros Oikonomou?

Fourty years ago, Petros Oikonomou, agronomist and teacher, visited for the first time Santorini and fell in love with the island and its rich farming history. Subsequently, he dropped his career, packed his bags and set as a life goal to revive the production of the Santorini cherry tomato. After many years of collecting seeds and recording the traditional farming and processing ways, he initiated his own organic tomato farm, that resulted to award winning products and the re-establishment of tomato production in the island. Nowadays, Petros continues producing a variety of local signature products while he trains the new generation of local farmers, aiming to diversify the economy of the island.
