Grecotel's Agreco Farm

Grecotel’s Agreco Farm gives a whole new meaning to ‘real experience.’ Founded by Grecotel’s owners on a 40-hectare estate near Rethymno, Crete, the traditional farm showcases centuries-old farming methods. The farm provides a fascinating insight into the organic production of the island’s simple and healthy food – a must for any visitor to Crete.

No trip to Agreco would be complete without a visit to the farm’s Taverna, where a sumptuous six-course menu of Cretan dishes, based on the farm’s organic produce.

 

Βe a Farmer for a Day

On Wednesdays visitors can play “Farmer for the Day” and learn just how it feels to make and eat home-made traditional Cretan food. Simply nowhere else in Greece can you ‘live life’ on an organic farm.

Families enjoy the Farm Experience, visit the mini zoo, while junior farmers (aged 6-12) can enjoy fun-filled farm activities including making dough & baking, picking vegetables and preparing dishes for their own healthy Cretan lunch.

Cretan Feast at Agreco

Cretan people are always looking for an excuse to celebrate. Two Sundays each month, guests can enjoy a ‘hands on’ experience by helping with seasonal work on the farm – from shearing the sheep & goats, harvesting the wheat, treading the grapes, making raki, collecting the olives and making olive oil.
 


Cretan Traditional Raki

Raki is served chilled, in individual glass bottles, accompanied by a rusk or a couple of olives. Wine is sipped with meals, but raki can be drunk any time, day or night.
