  • Learn about local products made by women.
  • Recognise their role in rescuing traditional techniques.
In detail

If there is one thing that characterises Arafo, it is its agricultural wealth, precisely because of the variety of products that are produced on this land. Furthermore, it is also due to the different women who are the protagonists of these agricultural methods. On this route we will focus on the production of honey and the traditional shepherding of Pelibuey sheep. That is why we will meet Carmen Gloria and Pilar, two transcendental women in the rural life of Arafo.

Carmen Gloria is at the head of the family business Bodegas Ferrera who, as well as producing organic wine, also produces honey recognised under the Denominación de Origen Tenerife seal. As for Pilar, she is reviving the traditional shepherding of the Pelibuey Sheep through her ancestral knowledge of this technique, producing the first organic mutton in the Canary Islands.

Following in the footsteps of their paths, we will cross the agricultural and cultural enclave of this area and we will be able to draw up a broad and real map of Arafo, one that allows us to pinpoint their work and follow the footprints of their footsteps.

The path will take us past important cultural landmarks, such as the washing places at the start of the route And if we wish to continue all the way to the end, it ends at the ovens of “Lo de los Ramos” belonging to the old Augustinian monastery, the remains of which have been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest.

WITHOUT THEM, NEITHER BEES NOR SHEEP
