Very good attraction, definitely recommended! We tried both the cheese making and clay pot making. The shepherd there was lovely and 100% authentic, all the staff was very friendly and lovely to deal with, the cheese we made was very good and the guy showing us how to make pots was very knowledgeable and friendly! The place felt a bit small and it felt a bit like it was setup mainly for tourists. But definitely recommended.

LOVE THIS AMAZING FARM. Took the 3 hour experience complete with learning about how olive oil is made, milked some goats while the shepherd made us fresh cheese over open fire and learned how to make Dolmas and Tzatsiki with ingredients we literally picked at the farm. Learned a lot about Cretan culture and history too. The folks here are warm and generous, it is a must!

Not for the off season

Beautiful farm with wonderful products. The kids liked watching the cats and skipping rocks in the sea. Nice that it was calm but all activities must be booked in advance even the 7€ small clay pot. Maybe worth it if your book something, looks like the classes would be interesting. If you’ve seen a olive oil farm before nothing out of the ordinary. Combined with the town its worth the trip.

A must see in Agios Nikolaos
Oct 2020 • Couples
Going to an olive farm in Crete was high up on the list, and this place did not disappoint. We chose the guided tour to get more out of it and had a lovely guide, forgotten her name unfortunately, but she was great and enjoyed answering questions.

We watched the process of how they made the olive oil and was able to test their own products, safely, after. They also offer cooking classes, which we would have loved to have known before.

We got a little carried away in their shop, but its really not expensive and all home made. We chose to buy our olive oils products from here, some home made pottery.

Its a very modest attraction with a lot of charm ad must see if you're in Agios Nikolaos.

Cheese Making Workshop
Sep 2020
One of the most authentic experiences we had in Greece for 7 weeks. A thorough tour of the farm and processes was super interesting backed up by goat milking, cheese making and shots of raki and olives to eat with the cheese maker. Definitely worth checking out even if not staying in the area - We drove from Heraklion for the morning

A must do in Crete
Aug 2020
Our experience at the Olive Oil Farm was the highlight of our holiday. Every member of staff was welcoming, kind and knowledgeable. The whole experience from start to finish was well planned out, informative, and just generally a great time. We did the full package which included the guided tour, cheese making and cooking class. Great value for money and learnt lots of tips to bring home to my own kitchen. The gift shop has an array of products so bring cash to take home a piece of heaven. I would recommend this experience to all ages.

A ‘must do’ if in the area
Aug 2020 • Couples
I’m glad we visited the Olive Oil Farm as it was informative, fun and thoroughly enjoyable.
We booked the oil making demonstration and ended up crushing & pressing olives ourselves!
There was a lovely German family who booked the same timeslot and as they spoke good English, they agreed for the talk to be delivered in our tongue - very generous of them.
The owner gave the talk and led the demonstration. It’s fascinating.
The only minus point is that the loos are aren’t nice, otherwise I’d say 5 stars. However, this is well worth a visit and in my opinion, a genuine slice of Cretan culture which is in danger of disappearing.
There are other options available, for example pottery, cooking, guided or unguided tour. There’s also a well-stocked shop.
I don’t think that kids under 10 would enjoy our option much as they may find it a bit long. As for us, thoroughly enjoyable and a short taxi ride from our hotel (Miramare) was only €11.
Highly recommended.
