One of the largest donkey farms in Europe combining tradition with fun!

The village of Skarinou stands on a hillside overlooking the Ayios Theodoros Valley in the Larnaca District. The village is dominated by its church and nestles amongst olive trees. Amidst this lovely rural location (which is surprisingly close to the highway) is Golden Donkeys Farm - the increasingly popular venue for fun family days or for hosting your special events!

Golden Donkeys Farm accommodates approximately 200 donkeys. The farm was build based on the love and care for sustaining the Cyprus tradition. The main reason for establishing the farm, was to protect these beautiful animals that are bound to extinct.

Once you enter the farm, you come across a very old olive tree, perhaps the oldest in Cyprus since it's estimated to be 1500 years old! There is much to discover and explore, like the well, the olive mill, the traditional cottage house the donkey museum and the wax museum which is a tribute to traditional cypriot professions and their history, presented through wax figures.

You can complete your visit by enjoying a lovely, traditional cyprus coffee at the cafeteria. Moreover, in the souvenir shop you can indulge yourself with traditional products and cosmetics made from donkey milk.

The venue is also the ideal place for dreamy vintage wedding receptions and for those who want to combine tradition with the latest party trends.
Amongst olive trees, the Golden Donkey farm hosts its own small church. Wedding or christening ceremonies take place in Panayia Memillon chapel offering memorable experiences to you and your guests.
The large patio can host open air or marquee parties and can accommodate a reception of up to 500 people.

Donkey Riding
One of the most exciting experiences in Cyprus is the donkey riding.

In the farm there are more than a 100 donkeys who are waiting to take you on a ride. Uppon your arrival, the farmers will demonstrate the right way to approach the donkeys and how to hold the reins. Please make sure that you wear comfortable clothes as well as flat shoes.
For your own safety it is  recommended not to scream or shout.
The donkeys love carobs which you can buy from the farm, feet them and immediately they will be your friends.
