An ideal farm and with herbs and products from the wealthy fields of Crete. The workshop and the exibition with the herbs is located close to Agios Nikolaos, an interesting stop for the visitors participating to excursions starting from that area. The herb cultivation originates from the wild nature of Crete. Stems were collected at the right period from the mountains of Crete and then rooted in our greenhouse at specific temperature and humidity. This method reproduces a clone of the actual wild herb found in Crete’s nature, keeping the aromas, the medicinal properties and quality of the original plant. No chemicals or pesticides are used during the cultivation, which gives an all natural and healthy produce. One of our aims, is the protection and preservation of the biodiversity of Crete, which has been negatively affected due to excessive grazing, improper collection of wild herbs and the use of pesticides in farming.
