Founded in 2010, Votania Organic Herb Farm is dedicated to the cultivation of wild Cretan herbs to protect and conserve the biodiversity of the island.
Serena and her family are inspired by their love of nature, their belief that preserving the biodiversity inherent to the Mediterranean is critically important, and a passionate desire to share the unique medicinal qualities of wild Cretan herb with their visitors and customers. Their herbs are all grown from cuttings from wild plants using local honey as a rooting hormone.
Votania also makes and sells a wide variety of herbal products that make health and well being available to their local community and visitors to the farm. Teas, aromatic spices, spice blends, skin care products and essential oils are some of the organic products they currently produce.
Our 2018 tour includes a visit to the farm and a workshop about the native herbs of Crete with lots of sampling. Their location along the Sea of Crete, with sweeping views of the sea and mountains, will make our visit to the farm truly stunning!
