Stock Breeding

Livestock farming in the Municipality of Mandamados, and especially in the district of Mandamados, has been the main activity of the residents of the area. The land was fertile and this helped in the development of animal farms. The product’s quality, such as the meat and the dairy, quickly became known to the whole island and encouraged other producers to better organize and upgrade their business.

Today, despite the difficulties faced by the producers (due to the low prices of their products), livestock farming continues its tradition in the Municipality of Mandamados. The commerce of its products in the entire island and the rest of Greece have promoted the area and made it one of the most important commercial areas in whole Greece.
