Il progetto

Adopt a sheep of our flock "Marqués de Mendiola" in Madrid (Spagna) and receive your harvest in the form of Sheep milk cheese at home. The Farmer Antonio will take care for your adoption and take its picture. Also, you will be able to download the adoption certificate and, if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. As the production coming from one sheep is big, the adoption is shared among various people. If you wish to have a bigger share, you may adopt more than once. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: once you receive your harvest and you enjoyed the experience, you may decide to renew and extend the adoption.

Cosa adotti?

Adopt a sheep from our farm in Madrid (Spagna). Some of the sheep you are adopting bear names chosen by our CrowdFarming community and some others are named after some of Spain's most abandoned villages. Sadly, Spain suffered a severe rural depopulation in the past century and we would like to honor these villages. Each sheep produces an average of 150 liters of milk each season. With this amount we can produce around 27 kg of Sheep milk cheese. Each sheep is adopted by 9 CrowdFarmers who receive a box with 3 kg of Sheep milk cheese. The productive life of a sheep is around 10 years. For as long as you want to keep it and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew your adoption year after year. If your sheep dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your harvest from other sheep.
