The Island of Gozo can boast of a largely authentic natural, richly structured cultural landscape. Today, contact with the land is still important for most Gozitans with many tending tiny gardens and allotments or small farms close to villages and towns where they grow vegetables and fruit, or to keep goats, chickens and bees. Visitors to the island can now stay in luxuriously restored farm houses in small villages or in the countryside itself to gain a real experience of the Gozitan rural lifestyle, or actually engage in hands-on agro tourism by visiting a working farm and small estate in the centre of the island. Here traditional foods, from fruit and cereals to goats’ cheese and wine are still harvested and processed in a traditional way.
