LOCATION AND CONDITIONS
The farm is located near the mountains of Drama region of Greece. The name comes from an ancient Greek settlement Dyrama of Hydrama, meaning “rich in water”. This part of East Macedonia has an elevation of 115 meters over the sea level and is remarkable by its ecology. At the moment Greek government chose Drama to develop ecotourism due to the rich local natural environment. There are no modern facilities and factories, economy of the region is mainly agricultural.
Water that we use comes from the springs and flows through 27 pools at the rate of 1200 liters per second. Our water is one of the biggest assets we have. Its temperature is stable and stays between 16 and 18 C all year. Part of it is taken by local villages for drinking purposes without any additional filtration by virtue of its’ startling purity. These factors make Drama a perfect place for OSETRUS Aquaculture.
Our farm has a processing plant built under all European Union regulations and fully equipped for extraction of roe, preparing caviar and packing it. Anti-bacterial lamps, full compliance with sanitary conditions and technologies and profound knowledge of the process provide the highest-class caviar as a result.
