(4 - 6 guests)
Be farmers and shepherds for one day and experience the daily routine at a local “mitato” (Naxian farm). Be part of the family, help with the “chores”, cook and enjoy a great meal.
You will be picked up from your hotel and drive towards the center of the island. Giannis and Katerina will warmly welcome you to their farm, a land of 500 acres where their animals live happily and free.
You will be guided in the farm and introduced to typical daily routines of a farmer’s life.
Your day will begin in Katerina’s kitchen. She will show you all her equipment and make you feel like home. Be her “sous-chef’ and learn her secrets for the ideal seasoning and baking in the traditional wood oven.
While waiting for your meal to be baked, you will help Giannis at his farm.
You will have the opportunity to interact with lovely animals like baby goats and lambs, chicken and of course the farm’s dog.
You will gather fruits and vegetables in season, collect eggs directly from the henry and help Katerina to prepare a quick delicious brunch.
Work is not over before you make the cheese. Participate in the cheese making procedure and learn the secrets of the traditional recipes for the famous Naxian cheeses – kefalotyri and xinotyro.
Everything is done and in place, and it’s time for the family to gather around the table and enjoy the fruits of the day. An authentic Greek lunch is waiting for you to enjoy along with your new friends.
