Sheperding goats in the montains, walking a lot to acompany them, helping to take care of the babies, milking, and so forth... :) Learning this almost no longer used way of herding in Europe, with a completely free range group of endogenous goats.

Programa detallado

Tasks consist of walking with the goats and helping to take care of the baby goats.

Sleeping will be in an old caravan near the goat sleeping place, for overnight protection, about 750 meters from the houses.

There is electricty only in the house, available from solar panels. There is no internet acess in the farm centre, since our system is a satellite one and is very limited.

Don't forget to bring good walking shoes and a sleeping bag.

Actividades & Turnos

Walking with the goats may be very time consuming. Most of the time you'll be just waiting for them to turn around or so, but your mind must be open for this.
