Do you want to feel the spirit of Cyprus and have an unforgettable experience and emotions? Come to one of the largest donkey farms in Europe, at Skarinou village.
Golden Donkeys Farm is located in Skarinou village, halfway between Larnaca and Limassol. When building it, we were based on our love and care for sustaining the Cyprus traditions. And we really wanted to help preserve the heritage of Cyprus – friendly and industrious animals, which many centuries faithfully served the Cypriots. After all, it is the Cyprus donkeys, who were the indispensable tool: they transported food and wine, they were the primary mode of transportation on the island for many centuries, it was the donkeys that helped in the production of olive oil, turning the heavy millstones, and in the manufacture of wine, carrying grapes from mountain plantations.
Well, today our farm is a home for around 170 donkeys, and each of them has its own name and character. Nowadays, we are the biggest donkey farm in Cyprus and probably, one of the biggest in Europe. The majority of our animals are females, in order to produce milk. Milking is done in a special designed space, in accordance with the requirements of the EU.
Arriving at our farm, you will get a lot of positive impressions and unforgettable emotions: here, you can take a walk on donkeys in the surrounding area, take a picture with the friendly animals and feed them. Our calm atmosphere, will melt away any stress and make you feel completely relax.
Moreover, in this farm you will also find a lot of other interesting things such as: the wax museum, the traditional Cyprus house, an ancient olive press, a small botanical garden, an amphitheater, one of the oldest olive trees in Cyprus, the small church of Virgin Mary of Memila (Memila is the name of the aria farm locates) and the coop, as well as our cozy restaurant and a souvenir shop.
