Originally we thought that this was a proper farm where we would be able to actually see that process of how olive oil is made and then taste it! But it was nothing like that! This should be relabled to a museum or some thing like that as it's simply a replica of how olive oil used to be pressed long long time ago. Overall, this was good value for money - the entrance was only £1.20 per adult (children could go for free), the guide talked how oil was pressed, explained how the press used to work. The farm had various trees, plants and herbs growing which were there to create an atmosphere of an old village yard rather then use the vegetation for trade purposes. The best thing about the farm was the pottery where children were shown how to make clay pots and then they could make their own and take them home! Mine really enjoyed it and their own pots was the highlight of their stay at Crete. We also liked green olive paste which needless to say we also baught a jar of it. Would recommend, especially if you have children

Lovely products, short but informal tour. A yard full of livestock, herbs and old farm machinery which was all surprisingly fun to visit
