    Bee keeping in Orhaniye

    Bee keeping in Orhaniye

    Bee keeping is very popular in Orhaniye and a major source of income to many families. If you get chance try and buy some of the local honey that can be bought in the local shops. It may be priced at a premium but worth it and you will be amazed at the quality and variety. Late summer the bees are a bit sleepy but if you ignore them you will be fine.

    Olive picking season

    by johncummins Written Dec 4, 2008

    If you are lucky enough to be in Orhaniye the first two weeks of November you will see that the whole village is busy beating the olive trees to harvest the ripe olives. After the olives have been dried in the sun it takes about 10 days to make them ready for eating. The rest are sent to Datcha for crushing in a community effort. You have never tasted olive oil as good…
