Be sure to eat at Gulin Farm on Korcula Island on a yacht charter cruise in Croatia.

Unique to Croatia, is the family farm dining experience or Homestead Dining, a great way to experience true Croatia while on a crewed yacht charter along this coastline. Reservations are required and must be made the day before, however with a call in advance by your Captain, you are welcomed to Gulin Farm by the family for a traditional home cooked Croatian meal.

Fish is caught fresh that morning. Livestock are raised right on the farm, as well as the vegetables. And bread is freshly baked. Every farm has their own olive orchard for making fresh pressed olive oil and a vineyard for their own family wines. Within the Dalmatian farm complex is a traditional kitchen organized with a Peka Bell for slow cooked meats, fish and vegetables drizzled in olive oil and sprinkled with local herbs, a Dalmatian speciality of cookery.

Also usually there is a wood fired barbecue for grilling, with a more modern kitchen for meal preparation and service as well. Gulin Farm has a Peka Bell cooking area and an outdoor wood fired barbecue. The whole family joins in to create a full farm Croatian fresh food meal as cooked under the Peka Bell and on the wood fired outdoor barbecue.

And at the end of the meal, perhaps you will be treated to the local men singing a cappella or what is known in Croatia as Klapa singing, to round out your truly Croatian experience. Enjoy a family farm dining experience at Gulin Farm when on a crewed yacht charter along the Croatian coast.
