  • Description

    Description

    Eco-farming is very close to you? Would you like to wake up to the smell of the sea and grow seasonal vegetables in our organic sun-bathed field? Already have some experience and knowledge and you're happy to see little plants becoming beautiful fruits? The engagement starts very soon and if you are interested, we are waiting for you!

    This is our family business located in Bol on the ancient island of Brač, Croatia. On a portion of our estate (around 500 m²) we grow seasonal vegetables and herbs for our local restaurant business. An oasis that is deeply supported by nature's warm Mediterranean climate, the intensity of insolation, the smell of the sea and aromatic herbs and the incredible views that extend from the far west across the south overlooking the slopes of Bol and the mythical Hvar.
