Katochori Community - Overview

  Katihori lies in the southeast part of the Municipality of Portaria. Is is picturesque village with rich vegetation, which has preserved its traditional aspect.
  As in the other compartments, here also the population cultivates olive and apple trees, vegetables and vineyards of excellent quality, a fact which has allowed the local population over the years to develop the production of wine and tsipouro. Nowadays there are not many vineyards left, and the wine production is limited to a small number of cultivators, who however still follow the traditional methods, which guarantee the excellent quality of the product. A number of farmers continue production, but the largest percentage of the product is consumed locally. In recent years olive cultivation has spread widely. The farming area of the village is one of the largest in Pelion, with thousands of olive-trees, which produce thousands of tons of oil, part of which is given to the Unions and commerce for edible use, while the largest part of the production goes to the oil- press, where large quantities of excellent quality oil is produced. Some producers make small quantities of Ā«unburntĀ» oil, which is considered by the older generation as a medicine for various health problems (stomach, liver, etc.).
  An Agricultural Assocation has been functioning for many years, which mainly aims at supporting the farmers work. The Association provides pesticides, is responsible for spraying the crops, and paying the producers from various business transactions with the Pelion Union.
