Tambor del Llano. Organic Farm
Tambor del Llano is a sustainable farm combining agriculture, forestry and cattle in ways that unite traditional practices (such as cork extraction) with a new management program for organic production that goes from mychorrhizal fungus to a plantation of ornamental plants.
Our guiding principle is to achieve an organic and integrated production that complies with all the legal requirements and moral responsibilities associated to Grazalema Natural Park and its natural and human environment.
Tambor del Llano is a 32 hectares estate located 4 kilometers away from the village of Grazalema. It is at the heart of the Natural Park of Grazalema, the first Reserve of the Biosphere declared in Spain (1972). A unique sierra located between Cádiz, Málaga and Sevilla.
Being south of Pico del Jaral (964 m), the state is an excellent balcony towards the Sierras de Libar and del Endrinal and the area known as Descansadero (resting place), a crossroad of several hiking paths where travelers can rest besides the Campobuche river (also known as Guadares) or set out for an incredible various astonishing walks.
Tambor dell Llano comprises a dense cork-oak forest rooted on large sandstone rocks and broken from time to time by small terraces that once hosted wine-trees and are now used for pasture and planting. Down the hill, there is the plain (el llano), where the vegetation changes and our horses and sheep feed freely.
The place features a wide representation of Mediterranean vegetation, both trees (cork oaks, wild olives, gall oaks, holm oaks, stone pines, quince trees, ancient pear-trees…) and shrub vegetation (brooms, rockroses, spurge flaxes, laburnums, hawthorns, thymes…).
