The Stanzia Castellani farm is located at the Southern tip of Cres Island in Croatia. It is an organic artisanal farm, home to hundreds of olive trees, figs, pomegranates, almonds, jujube, rosemary, lavender, buhac, helichrysum and a thriving vegetable garden. A dense, untouched forest, full of deer, boars and other wild animals, surrounds the cultivated farm.

We are certified organic and are wholly committed to sustainable practices. We are proud to be using only solar energy.

We welcome visitors to our farm all year round to take part in the workshops, cultural and agricultural events that we host. Check out our up-coming events, to find out more about how to visit or participate!

We are also open to volunteers!
