ΑγρόκτημαFrom generation to generation Efkarpia's broader family transferred the knowledge of crops, the love of the land as well as the insistent and continuous search of innovative ideas, new information and technology.

The fertile plains of Thessaly are considered to be the greatest potential grain production of the Greek peninsula, since the prehistoric years.

In Larissa, the center of the plain of Thessaly, Themistoklis Bliatsos chose to bring his family from the Peloponnese at the end of the 19th century right after the liberation of Thessaly from Turks.

Purchasing part of the Turkish oldest privilege by the Greek government in the region of Larissa as well as the konaki of the Turkish Agha -with the premises, warehouses, stables dovecotes etc- he  turned to become a landowner.

A man of action and hard work, Themistoklis Bliatsos loved the Thessalian land and imparted this love to his son George, who modernised the cultivation of cereals.

By the mid-20th century after the expropriation of the 1952 ,George's children, Themistoklis and Chris had purchased new land and had experienced rapid growth. Themistocles, who had been always a pionner, in collaboration with researchers from the Greek Farm School of Thessaloniki and the American Farm School, proposed and progressed into new crops.

Tirelessly, the two brothers, who shared a unique love for the land and its fruits, grow not only cereals but also pulses, legumes, cotton, watermelons and posed a standard 150-acre estate with new pear varieties.

Fotini Bliatsou, Themistocles's daughter, and her son Lekkas Themistoklis continue with the family tradition today.
