Summary of the project

Finca S’Ullestrar is a farm of 14 hectares of its own + 10 hectares rented from a neighbouring farm located in Ciutadella (Menorca). Run by a family (parents and two sons). Some 23 ha dedicated to pasture (ray grass, oats and barley), and 1 ha dedicated to orchard crops and peanuts. The farm has 30 cows for cheese production, 20 pigs, 10 sheep, 70 hens for egg production, 4 goats, 20 rabbits, 1 horse and 1 duck. They sell cheese, piglets, calves, piglets, eggs, peanuts and vegetable garden. The young members of the family show great concern for the sustainability of the planet and the farm, and their concerns have led them to attend training courses on an ongoing basis. They are active students of the Menorca Preserved courses. Their proactive attitude, youth, initiative, drive and concerns make them perfect candidates to help them in the transition process of the s’Ullestrar estate towards Regenerative agriculture.
