35 years after planting an olive grove in the magical Lachish region of Israel, the Tamir family learned that an ancient Byzantine wine press was discovered on that very same spot. This indicated fertile soil and a large scale of agricultural activity. Thus a name was chosen: Ptora, as the name of the ancient city, covered by the sands of time. Ptora farm specializes in growing olives, grapes and other fruits, producing world class award-winning olive oil of the purest quality, boutique wines – each with its own unique character, unforgettable crystal clear honey so rich in taste, and a large variety of other Israeli agriculture based products.
