The terms production output in the hinterland society of Tzoumerka are primarily defined by sheep farming and agriculture. Whether nomadic or semi-nomadic, the sheep farmer’s job description included the management of large herds which required extensive pastures and the analogous workforce to man the animals.

Aside from sheep farming, the domestic rearing of animals, in other words the ownership and handling of a small number of animals, provided the required staples. These animals were deemed necessary in order to ensure the provision of basic food items (e.g. milk, cheese, meat, fat) and also carried out agricultural tasks. The common agricultural crops were cereals (e.g. wheat, corn, barley, oats). These products covered the nutritional needs of families and their animals. In terms of agriculture vegetables were cultivated in a specially designed area near the courtyard or at the periphery of settlements and complemented the existing yield.
