Hi, we are Dutch farmers in Spain, in Salamanca.

From March until May a lot of babies will be born. So we herd the mothers and take care of the little ones. We really need volunteers in this period, because watching to see if the babies grow well, takes a lot of time.

We now live in a small village called El Payo, province Salamanca. A very quit place. There is a lot of terrain to herd the goats in the way we want: quiet and a lot of food. Now we have 150 cabras and 50 cabritos.
We herd all year around, every day with our shepherd and guard dogs.

From June until September we milk and make cheese. We built a cheese-dairy in El Payo and we started to produce cheese in May 2018. Small-scale and all organic!

In November and December we also will be harvesting olives.

Always we are cleaning fincas, pruning, cutting and collecting wood, repairing the house and stable, repairing walls and fences.

We will, off course, supply bed and meals and free time to enjoy the place.
We talk Dutch, Spanish, English, German, little bit of French. There are buses from Madrid, via Salamanca to a village nearby where we will pick you up.

We hope to meet you! Wilma and Sikko
