A gastronomic journey through

Ravni Kotari


There is a place in the heart of Croatia, known as the Ravni Kotari region. This place has a deep connection to its heritage and culture, which has led to an impressive talent in cooking. It's not just a destination for labeling as another tourist spot, oh no; it is a geographical embodiment of tradition itself, offering delightful dishes made from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, each prepared using techniques perfected over many years. This area is a great example of how agriculture can inspire gastronomy and contribute to its growth.

The agricultural heritage of Ravni kotari

As you step onto the OPG Ćusa Farm  you are greeted by the sight of a lush olive garden, a testament to the region's rich agricultural heritage. The gentle braying of donkeys from the farm's donkey sanctuary adds a touch of whimsy to the atmosphere, while other domestic animals roam freely, showcasing the farm's commitment to a harmonious coexistence with nature.

The farm's philosophy is simple yet profound: everything served is sourced from their own organic garden or procured from neighboring family farms. This commitment to local and organic produce ensures that every bite is not only delicious but also supports the community's sustainable farming practices.

From farm to table delights

Who understands food better if not farmers who grow them respecting mother earth's grip over lifecycle? Here at Kotari, food isn't just about filling stomachs.
Your journey begins with a relaxed walk around the farm, breathing in the fresh, earthy aroma of the soil and greenery around you. The tour then leads to a tasting of homemade beverages, sweets, and the farm's special olive oil. The appetizers, before the main meal are made with the very freshest produce, all showcasing the rich produce the land has to offer.

Traditional lunch under "Peka"

The highlight of the visit is the traditional lunch prepared under a "peka," an iron bell used to cook meat and vegetables to perfection. The peka imparts a unique flavor that is both rustic and refined, creating a culinary experience that is deeply rooted in Croatian culture. For those with dietary preferences, the farm thoughtfully offers vegan and vegetarian options, ensuring that everyone can partake in the feast.
As you dine in the cozy room adjacent to the fireplace, the process of making the meal becomes part of the experience. The warmth of the fire and the clinking of glasses filled with local wine set the stage for relaxation and conviviality.

After a delicious lunch, a traditional cake awaits, offering a sweet touch to the end of your meal. The welcoming atmosphere at the farm isn't just about the food. You're encouraged to go outside and enjoy time with the animals. You might also have the chance to gather eggs from the chickens, depending on the time of year and the weather conditions.

Homemade and handmade products

For those looking to take a piece of Ravni Kotari home, the farm's small shop presents an array of local homemade and handmade products. From the delicate flavor of donkey milk to the robust notes of olive oil and wine, each item is a celebration of the region's artisanal craftsmanship.


A visit to this family farm in Ravni Kotari is more than just a meal; it's an invitation to slow down, savor the moment, and connect with the land and its people. It's an experience that stays with you, long after the last drop of wine has been savored and the final crumbs of cake have been enjoyed. In the heart of Zadar's countryside, the spirit of agrotourism thrives, offering a glimpse into a way of life that is both timeless and enchanting.
