Ancient Greece

Greek Food

Soil was not very fertile along the coastline. The Ancient Greeks used systems of irrigation and crop rotation to help solve that problem. They grew olives, grapes, and figs. They kept goats for milk and cheese. In the plains were they had rich soil they also grew wheat to make fantastic bread. The fish, seafood, and wine made fresh were very popular foods. In some of the bigger Greek city meat could be bought in the butcher shop. Meat was barely eaten, and was used for religious sacrifice.
