And what can we do to contribute to the task of this cooperative? One of the options, within everyone’s reach on a daily basis, is to buy their products. Ingredients of the highest quality and the attention put during their elaboration are the keys of the success of their products. Over 500 cows are raised in a luxurious environment with the farm of the cooperative, which has recently had to associate with other cooperatives and farms to cover the increasing demand of its products. And it’s not only their yoghurt, ice-creams, creams, … which are superb. Their products also include jams from up to 12 different flavours, perfect to pair with meat, cheese, … elaborated with fruits and vegetables of proximity.

If you want to do something more, you can join any of the volunteering programs that the cooperative offers. You have several options, according to your availability: you can join the group in one of their weekend excursions (parties, swimming-pool, theatre, cinema, …), you can also collaborate preparing sport related activities, help with the daily tasks in the flats, or different programs to improve their emotional and physical health.

And if you are curious to know how their products are made and where their ingredients come from, you can enjoy one of the guided visits around the farm and the factory. They are working to improve the visitor centre, but we truly recommend you to visit the cooperative once they have opened the centre again.
