Goats were used for milk and cheese, chicken were kept for eggs but, they were eaten when they couldn't lay anymore. The greeks also only ate chicken or goat on ceremonial days when they were sacrificed. They also used fish everyday, as well as octopi,squid and shellfish.
October was when grain was planted and it was harvested in May. Olives and grapes were harvested in September.

Grain,fruit and vegetables were grown on flat land around the cities, but they couldn't grow enough, especially with how big Athens was. They often traded for grain and/or goods.
