OverviewHide
Just minutes' outside of the city center, life is very different from the bustle of the beach promenades, at the Ekzarkho Ecofarm. Here, you'll visit the horse barn and goat ranch where you'll learn about the different breeds and the peculiarities of their keeping, followed by a tasting session of pasteurized goat milk, vegetarian goat, and cow's milk cheese. After, head to the Matsesta Tea plantation and factory where a guide will tell you about Russia's tea-growing history; the peculiarities of crop cultivation; and the technology of tea-leaf processing. Your tour concludes with a tea tasting accompanied by local delicacies.
