Starts at 4:30pm from your hotel, where the bus will pick you up and drive directly to the the farm. Drive across the center of the island that unites the city (Hora) of Mykonos with the village of Ano Mera. Arrive at the Mykonian Farm and be greeted by the Farm's superintendent who will welcome you with traditional treats, such as the famous Greek delights (loukoumi) and dried figs. Sit and relax on a traditional stone built couch sipping raki, while learning the history of the island's farming, its livestock and its crops. Afterwards, be guided through the farm, showing you how the organic and the animal farming operates. All the farm animals (pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens and our proud donkey "Konstantis") will also be there to meet you.
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 instructions as you go along.
Immediately after the farming tour, begins the Hellenic barbecue experience, which is filled with gastronomic delights that will make your stomach rumble throughout the procedure. An experienced grill man will start the fire, and a variety of the highest quality Hellenic meat will be there to consume at the "feast". All participants will take turns in learning the Hellenic practices of barbecuing. During the whole procedure, you will also learn to make necessary side dishes, such as the famous horiatiki salad, which of course will consist of ingredients straight from our farm, the well-known tzatziki sauce, with fresh cucumbers directly picked from our garden and also a fresh Mykonian sausage omelet will be cooked on the spot, with eggs that you will pick directly from our coop. All necessary equipment for the barbecue will be provided for all participants. The "junketing" and the consumption of meat, wines, drinks are free of charge with no limit on quantity and time duration, and will be served under a shady pavilion. Make sure that your outfit is casual, as there is little room for a "formal dress code" on the farm.
After this experience comes to an end, there will be a photo session with guests and staff, and shortly after 8:30 return to your hotel.
