BIOSUN fields are located in Trikala within the Thessalian plain an important, fertile, agricultural area of Greece.
Although within the Thessalian plain, the fields are at the foot of two important mountains Itamos, and Koziakas, which mark the east side of the Pindos mountainline. Those mountains mark the entrance to a great gorge and the natural path that leads to western Greece. The gorge, first mentioned in the Antiquity through the work of Pausanias, was referenced as the “Great Gates”, forming a natural passage between Western Greece (Epirus) and Eastern Greece (Thessaly).
BIOSUN fields benefit of the Mediterranean climate, hot summers, quite mild autumn and spring and cold winters.
