In the farm of Kamihis, you and your friends or you along with your children will have the option to become farmers- breeders for a day, in the Cretan way!
- You can discover the properties of the herbs and of the wild edible greens of the Cretan land.
- You will pick up vegetables from our garden and fruit from our trees!
- You will have the chance to pet, to feed and to get to know from close the animals of the farm, such as sheep, goats, piglets, hens, geese, turkeys, ducks, little rabbits, and our little donkey Louisa!
Get to know the production process of fresh Cretan cheese from milking to cheesemaking, always in the traditional way and experientially!
We will use the fresh cheese in order to make little pies with traditional Cretan crust and we will fry them on the fire, the so-called parastia [fireside]!
Then you will relax at the courtyard of the house enjoying Cretan delights, nice home-made raki and wine, and of course your hand-made little pies, enjoying the natural sounds of the farm and admiring the peaceful landscape!
Our farm is in perfect co-operation with nature, as we follow the natural growth rates of plants and animals, because we focus on quality rather than quantity. That is why we have reduced the feed to 70%, and we have turned to organic non-genetically modified feeders.
We also have full exploitation of solar energy with which we produce the electricity we need. We produce our own olive oil in the ancient way, pressing the olives with a stone cylinder and without mechanical means.
We use the natural dew of the soil to keep the food for a short time cool, placing it in clay pots buried in the soil.
We produce raki with the Minoan system in a clay distillery.
We cook in minoan clay pots with a tripod on charcoal and bake in the parastia (traditional oven) by lighting the woods.
We also emphasize that , at last, we all sit together at the table and enjoy the fruit of our effort, chatting and eating ... a companionship like the old times!
