We took the family to Greece this summer.
It has been a little while. We wanted to share an update! We took the family to Greece this summer. It had been a few years due to our new little additions to our family and the pandemic. It was a memorable summer as it was the first time we brought the kids. We enjoyed family time and showed them where we grew up and worked. It was special in that we visited our family farm in Kalloni on the Greek island of Lesvos, where the story of Stani first began. The kids loved seeing the farm, the animals, and the land. They could not get enough of it. It was a full-circle moment. This is where Ignatios learned the skill and knowledge from a little boy to provide a foundation to pursue his attendance at Galaktomika College of Ioannina (the only college for dairy producers in Greece and the Balkans) and ultimately the creation of Stani Dairy. The family traditions and memories passed down from generation to generation, in this case, three generations, make this a special story. Hopefully one day our children can use these skills to continue the Stani tradition!
