Let´s get a donkey!

We´re going to get a donkey for Ibiza! Two actually. They need company. Either Ibizencan donkies or donkies from the sanctuary that we can take care of. These will be our first animals on the farm we are creating for Rustic Escapes. We have also applied to a typical ´pagés´farm to adopt five sheep. I love ibizencan sheep. They are completely different to those found elsewhere.  We have a lovely big field for them and are thinking of installing a shepherd´s hut so that we can watch them graze. it will be a ´real´shepherd´s hut! As part of the farm we have almost finished restoring a three hundred old finca complete with an old olive press . We shall be planting olive and almond trees, a vineyard and fields of aromatic herbs and fruit trees alongside a kitchen garden for our guests. Guests will be able to learn the skills of oil and wine production , baking bread in a traditional oven and milking sheep to make cheese.  We shall also have hens and bees. We shall let you know as soon as we have water! We are busy drilling a well and awaiting the necessary permissions for what is going to be a thriving farm. What an exciting project!
