Bioparnon, Mount Parnonas, Peloponnese

BioParnon was established in 2013, after a decade of research into how herbs can be tools for healing and survival. Their organic fields are located in the Vourvoura community at the foot of Parnonas Mountain in the Peloponnese and the company collaborates closely with its farmers and growers, who work alongside nature rather than against it. All BioParnon herbs are grown under the mantra that ‘Mother Nature knows best’: they are grown without pesticides and they are preserved without chemical additives, so they retain their quality and potency.
