The ideal adventure that will bring us close to the traditional animal and organic farming of a Mykonian Farm. The farm began operating on October of 2012, and it is moving slowly and steadily forward to reestablishing the Mykonian traditional farming.
The adventure starts at 17:00 from the hotel, where the bus will pick us up and take us to the farm. We will drive across the center of the island that unites the city (Hora) of Mykonos with the homonym village of Ano Mera, a distance of 7 kilometers. Once we arrive at the village we will pass through the picturesque square, and visit the monastery of Panagia Tourliani. We then continue by walking only 400 meters to the Mykonian Farm where we will be greeted by the Farm’s superintendent who will guide us through the territory, recounting the history of the places while showing us how the organic and the animal farming operates.
Later, while sitting and relaxing on a traditional stone built couch sipping raki we will learn the history of the island’s farming, its livestock and its crops. During the storytelling of the Mykonian Traditional farming habits, you will enjoy a farmer’s snack consisting of bread, tomatoes, kopanisti, cucumbers and poor man’s black olives, accompanied by the traditional raki.
Depending on the season, you can cut and savor products from the vegetable garden. For those visitors who wish to get involved with farming tasks, the superintendent will provide you with the right tools and instruct you as you go along.
Shortly before 20:00, we will take the way back to the hotel, or to the “Mykonian Spiti” for a traditional dinner, for those who have chosen the dinner option on their initial reservation.
