draft oxen, carobs, citrus fruit, goats, Pigs

Some 11 percent of the land area is under cultivation. Most of the holdings are small and are worked using traditional methods.

The principal crops are potatoes, grapes, citrus fruit, barley, wheat, carobs, and olives. The output of cereals and olives is insufficient to meet domestic demands. Livestock breeding, mainly of sheep and goats, is important. Pigs, cattle (including draft oxen), donkeys, mules, and horses also are raised. Dairy products are mainly cheese and yogurt made from sheep and goat milk.
