Chalkidiki, thanks to the climate (few rains, high temperatures, minimal frosts) and the morphology of the ground, produces oil and olives that distinguish for their particular flavour and quality. The olive trees of Chalkidiki are cultivated without chemical interventions. They have high nutritious value and particular flavour and therefore are established as a special brand in the hellenic area. The apiculture is particularly widespread in Chalkidiki. There are 6500 apiarists and each year are produced almost 2000 tons of honey of exceptional quality. To the excellent quality of honey contribute so much the climate as the extensive pinewoods of Chalkidiki. The most important areas of honey production are Nikiti, Kassandra and Arnaia. Other traditional products of Chalkidiki are the textiles and the traditional hagiographies. In the region of Arnaias, even today, women manufacture traditional textiles. The quality, the variety of drawings and the colours make Chalkidiki's textiles unique. Also Chalkidiki is one of the regions of Greece with the biggest tradition in the production of wine. Even though the abbeys continue to produce exquisite varieties of wine with traditional methods, today the wine-production in Chalkidiki belongs to the wine industries Tsantali and Porto Karras.
