Valia and her team arranged an incredible birthday meal for me and my friends, which they cooked at the villa we were renting. From the start, it was easy to communicate with Valia, and she made several suggestions for the menu. On the day, everything went to plan, with an amazing meal prepared for us out of local ingredients, many of them grown on the farm. This was one of the highlights of our two week stay in Crete, and everyone really enjoyed the food, and visiting the Olive Farm. It was lovely to meet Valia and Giannis and their family, they are really special people. Thank you, and we will definitely be back next year.

These folks are doing something I found to be very important. Authentic, feet-on-the-ground organic farming, reclamation of heirloom seedlines, varieties of herbs, flowers, vegetables and fruit. Cooking classes - from field picking to oven-stoking, learning all the while. Hand made kitchen tools from olive wood, aromatic and infused locally pressed olive oil, tinctures, body oils. This is a remarkable little gem. New and small and a tad rustic, but I LOVE that, and you are shoulder to shoulder with these young pioneers. Meet these people, ask for custom classes and be a part of this venture. Nice work ! Doug
