Life in a farmhouse
They say that farmers are nature’s gardeners. And perhaps it’s true, as they were the first people to look after the environment, cultivate the land, create rural tracks and paths, etc. But it’s when the good weather arrives that farmhouses are at their most active, gathering in the hay and fodder that the animals will eat when they are stabled during the winter months, along with gardening tasks in the allotment where the rows of vegetables are first a treat for the eyes and then for the taste-buds!
Apart from these summertime activities, at Casa Vilanova you can immerse yourself in farm life all year round. The rabbits and hens always need feeding and the cows need milking, with the milk being used almost entirely to produce cheese. In this respect we recommend you pay a visit to Tros de Sort, an artisan cheese-maker where they use the milk you will have seen produced.
