Baserri Eguna [“Farmstead Day”]

Ardiei ilea mozten Igartubeitin

Date: 16 June

Incorporation with: Ezkio-Itsaso Municipal Council, Yartu elkartea

This day commemorating the work of Basque farmers was first organised in 2009. Each year a specific theme is chosen, so as to make each different edition a special event. Tributes are paid to people who have done outstanding work in the rural world, numerous activities are staged and a lunch is served.

The sixth edition was devoted to sheep herding, a task whose roots date back to the most ancient customs and which is today in danger of disappearing in its traditional, environmentally friendly form.
