Boutros Bou Maroun -Shep­herd, Sagh­bine

In his ‘70s, Boutros Bou Maroun is a de­scen­dent of an old fam­ily of shep­herds and has herded lo­cal goats all his life. Like all ex­pe­ri­enced shep­herds, he knows ev­ery nook and cranny be­tween Kher­bet Qana­far and Ai­tanit. A walk with Aammo Boutros is sim­ply a de­light: he has end­less sto­ries to share about his goats; their names, what they graze on and the best way to tend for them.

Philippe Risha - Olive farmer, Ai­tanit

A young man from Ai­tanit, Phillippe Risha holds his olive or­chards, in­her­ited from his fam­ily, dear to his heart. In Novem­ber and De­cem­ber, he wel­comes vis­i­tors in his land to par­tic­i­pate and learn about olive har­vest­ing and ac­com­pa­nies them to visit the nearby olive mill in Ai­tanit and watch both old and new tech­niques of olive oil ex­trac­tion.
