Sunrise farm

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a family of four, Zeta, Mike, Yannis (12 years) and Athina (9 years), who live in the mountains in the Peloponnese region of Greece. Our small village, Bozika, has a population of less than 150 people, and is located 30 minutes from Kiato, . We live our lives simply, as close as possible to the natural world, and we appreciate the richness that nature brings to our lives. Our family enjoys cooking and sharing traditional dishes from the Greek culture, and for the past 9 years we have been operating a small tavern/restaurant next to our house. In the restaurant, we serve food that we grow on our farm, including fruit, vegetables, pork, chicken, rabbit, turkey, cheese, honey and products we make from our olives!
