The estate’s more than 600 acres support a herd of Mallorquin sheep, wild and domesticated goats, as well as carob trees, and thousands of ancient olive trees that produce a wonderful oil. The farm also has fields for growing feed for the sheep, a bountiful green garden, a small orchard of fruit trees and many grape vines. During the fall season, there are an abundance of wild mushrooms, including the area’s famous chanterelles.
Farm life has its own rhythms and delights, such as baking bread or roasting lamb or goat in the great outdoor ovens that are part of the working patio, and, of course there are the seasonal activities and fiestas. The pinnacle of the fiesta season is the olive oil pressing in the ancient Tafona during which guests can see olives picked and pressed using techniques that have not changed in many centuries. Many join right in.
Pedruxella’s mountains, woods, terraces and fields are ideal for hiking, biking, bird watching or hunting. There are hiking trails that ascend to the top of the estate and onto the spine of the mountain range from which a large part of Mallorca’s northeastern tip stretches out into the Mediterranean.
