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

We live in the winter in a finca in Sierra de Gata; from spring until November in Salamanca, in a small village called El Payo. Both very quit places.

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 60 cabritos. We milk in the morning, take care for the babies and new mothers. And work in the stable.

From July until November we make cheese. We built a cheese-dairy in El Payo and we started to produce cheese in May 2018. Small-scale and all organic!
From November till March we herd in the forest with our shepherd and guarddogs.

In November and December we also will be harvesting the 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 is a bus from Madrid to a village nearby where we will pick you up by car.

We hope to meet you! Wilma and Sikko
