cheese making


This is a hands-on cheese-making experience. With the guidance of our local shepherd, you will have the chance to milk and feed the goats, help in the production of two types of cheese (“malaka” & “mizithra”) and learn the secrets of cheese-making in Crete. As you are waiting for “mizithra” to be ready – it takes almost 20 minutes – we will invite you for a cheese tasting of another two very famous types of Cretan cheese, “Gruyere” & “Anthotyros”. In the end, you will taste the freshly-made cheese you helped produce, along with our homemade meze and raki!


Milk the goat and help the shepherd to prepare the fire place. Help the shepherd make two types of traditional cheese “malaka” & “mizithra” and hear the stories and origins behind cheese production in Crete.
