VISIT THE SALGOT ECOGRANJA WITH CHILDREN
The Salgot ecological farm is located just an hour from Barcelona, making it an ideal place for day or weekend getaways, since after visiting, you can take advantage of routes through the natural park and enjoy a privileged environment.
The eco-farm is an R&D center where a population of pigs lives in optimal conditions so that they grow in the most natural and healthy way.
The space has been created so that sunlight is taken advantage of in all areas, and the animals can enjoy an environment and outdoor facilities. Electricity is obtained from solar panels and biomass boilers. Throughout the year, the pigs have heating and fresh straw.
In addition, they eat organic barley, wheat, peas and olive oil.
VISIT TO THE ECO FARM FOR FAMILIES
A perfect plan for children is to take the guided tour that Salgot has prepared for families. The activity consists of a tour of the different spaces and warehouses, adapted to the evolutionary stages of pigs, which can range from pregnant females, suckling piglets to large pigs. Perfect for children to get surprised at seeing small pigs …
In addition, you will be lucky enough to know the entire history of the eco-farm and all its projects from the hand of a member of the Salgot family who explains the history of the company from its inception to the last project that has been the construction of the eco-farm.
The guided tour lasts an hour and a quarter and the children can feed the pigs. Therefore, they invite the children to find acorns on the ground of the farm to feed them to the pigs. Let’s see who doesn’t dare to feed them!
And it ends with a tasting of organic products that can also be purchased in your store. Fancy it, right?
