If you are looking for something different to do with your family, Golden Donkeys Farm is an ideal option for a day out. This is the biggest donkey farm in Cyprus. There are around 170 donkeys at the Farm, and each of them has its own name and character. The majority of the donkeys are females, in order to produce milk.
Our day started early in the morning. We left Limassol and it took us around 20 minutes to reach the farm. We bought our tickets, including lunch, and went to walk around the farm.
The main part of the farm is where all the donkeys are. You can see the donkeys, feed them with carobs (you can buy them at the entrance), and even enjoy a donkey ride. To be honest, I would recommend donkey riding only for kids. We got 1 ticket for both kids at 8 EUR. The donkey ride lasted 15 minutes and both kids loved it.
There’s more to see and do
Apart from donkeys, you will find some goats, rabbits, hens, and ducks so if you have children they will love it. There’s an area for baby Donkeys but there were no baby donkeys when we visited. Moreover, at the Golden Donkeys Farm, you will find a lot of other interesting things such as museums, where you get to learn about the history of Cyprus, an ancient 1500 years old olive tree, a small botanical garden, an amphitheater (where events are hosted), the small church of Virgin Mary of Memila, a cozy restaurant, and a souvenir shop.
2 hours are ideal to spend at the farm when you have kids. They will need their time to explore around, see the animals, feed the donkeys, take a donkey ride and play at the playground area.
PS: Donkey milk seems to be very healthy and you can buy a bottle on your way out. Read more about Donkey Milk on the Golden Donkeys Farm website.
