The Farm

The fields that belong to the farm are cultivated long time before the house construction.
The farm agricultural activity always favored the traditional crops such as potatoes, forage crops to feed cattle, olive grove with centennial trees, and vineyards. In a non commercial scale there is usually a small summer yard which provides the house with onions, tomatoes, peppers, lettuces, and beans.
Once a year, depending on the season, several fruit trees and plants present us with pears, apples, nuts, cherries, figs, sloes, sour cherries, grapes, and persimmons. Raising cattle such as sheep and pigs for trading and self-consumption is also an activity in the farm.
With such a busy agenda, days on the farm are often long and tiring.
