Play Greek Farmer for the Day at the Agreco Farm and learn just how it feels to make and eat home-made traditional Cretan food.
Get a ‘hands-on’ experience including:
• Making farmhouse bread and baking it in the wood-burning oven. Try it fresh from the oven, dipped in virgin olive oil.
• Visiting the wine press to taste organic wines and see where grapes are pressed by foot in the autumn.
• The raki `still` that produces Crete’s famous tsikoudia.
• Picking vine leaves to make the famous Greek dolmadakia. The Agreco cook makes wrapping the leaves look so easy – so see if you are as good!
• Pick vegetables from the organic gardens to enjoy later.
• We won’t ask you to catch the hens, just collect their eggs to make village-style scrambled eggs.
• Milk the goats and help shear the sheep! See how local cheese is made and taste the fresh milk.
• Make Cretan cheese pies
• In the Farm square, visit the Chapel of St. Nicholas, watch the resident artist at work and pop into the Farm Shop to buy Agreco organic products to remind you of your day at the farm.
Afterwards, relax under the shady pergola with views over the olive groves down to the sea and enjoy a farmhouse lunch including the fruits of your labour.
