Winter on the Gariful Farm, and a 2015 Restaurant Opening Date

By Ivana Vrselja January 27, 2015 Blog

The restaurant may have been closed during the winter, but it has been a busy period for the Gariful team, with most attention focused on a piece of land high above Hvar Town on the main road to Stari Grad.

What started out as a project to grow organic fruit and vegetables for the restaurant has taken on a life of its own.

The Gariful Farm has become the Gariful Zoo and its inhabitants are flying in from literally all over the world! An eagle from Kazhakstan, a llama from South America, and plenty of others as well.

The Gariful Zoo is now open and free for all to visit, and it is already proving a hit with local kids. The zoo was featured on national television recently, as well as this excellent video by Hvar TV about life in winter on Hvar. Check it out below.

Gariful is also delighted to announce that the 2015 season for the restaurant will begin even earlier this year, and the restaurant will be opening its doors to offer Dalmatia’s finish seafood to old friends and new on March 5.

We thank you for your support so far, and we look forward to seeing you in the restaurant, or at the zoo, soon.
