Later, while sitting and relaxing on a traditional stone-built couch sipping raki you will learn the history of the island’s farming, its livestock, and its crops. During the storytelling of the Mykonian Traditional farming habits, you will enjoy a farmer’s snack consisting of bread, tomatoes, kopanisti, cucumbers and poor man’s black olives, accompanied by the traditional raki.

And if that is not enough you will enjoy a wine pairing with your meal. The “Lunch will be served under our shady pavilion 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.
