Educational farm for schools


Sa Mandra is also a place of active teaching where children, teens, families, teachers and educators can live experience in the agro-pastoral world.

The intent of our educational farms is to increase the knowledge of the world of farmer and shepherd, a world so vague and distant to “citizens”. Living an experience - milking, baking bread, collecting herbs - is important to creating a healthy relationship with nature and the products that nourish us.

Educational farms are suitable for students of all ages and groups of children, families and adults.
