This unique experience starts at 17:00 from your hotel, where the bus will pick us up and drive us to the farm. We will drive across the center of the island that unites the city (Hora) of Mykonos with the village of Ano Mera. Once we arrive at the Mykonian Farm we will be greeted by the Farm’s superintendent who will welcome you with traditional treats, such as the famous Greek Delights (loukoumi) and dried figs, and we will 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, he will guide us through the farm, showing us how the organic and the animal farming operates. All our farm animals (pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens and our proud donkey “Konstantis”) will also be there to greet and 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 barbeque experience, which is filled with garstronomic delights that will make your stomach rumble throughout the procedure. Our 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 Barbequing, constantly guided by our grill man. 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 barbeque 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 our shady pavillion perfectly located on our farm. 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 20:30, transport service to your hotel or any other location is arranged.

Such an amazing experience! I booked this tour for my family, and everyone truly enjoyed it. Our host was very informative, friendly, and welcoming. The food was outstanding. Each course was delicious, and timed very well. So much food! Good for foodies, and getting to know the locals.
Great host, great food, great conversation. These are the things I really enjoy, an authentic experience. If you really want to experience Greek culture and hospitality this tour is for you.
We loved this tour there were only 4 of us but with enough food and wine for twice as many. The food was delicious and plentiful. No one went home hungry. The farm was interesting and I am glad we went.
