Of course, in Mallorca you will find cactus and agave everywhere. But did you know that in the very north of the island there is a aloe vera farm, cultivating these valuable plants for cosmetic articles, pure aloe vera juice and spirits.
I just visited this farm close to Playa de Muro and had been impressed by the huge plant, the taste of a fresh aloe vera filet (it does not really has a taste but try it) and the way of production.
The farm is located next to a tiny road connecting Santa Margalida with the coast, direction Arta, and is about 40 hectares. Here, they raise and care for thousands Aloe plants. The 200,000 plants must have at least five years, before harvesting the leaves. A plant needs at least 2,000 hours of sunshine during the year to get juice nutrients.
The farmers invite everyone to a free tour where you can get an overall impression about our 100% organic cultivation and manufacturing of our products.
After your visit, take a glass of orange juice with aloe vera juice – very healthy and tasty – in the cosy garden next to the shop. And don´t forget to shop, either for yourself or for your friends. They do not only produce cosmetic products but also spirits and pure juice. The best souvenir you can take from Mallorca! Or if you come by car, buy your aloe vera plant at the farm at best price - and for sure best quality.
Plan with about 1 hour for this excursion in Mallorca, visiting the plant, shop and a rest in the garden. This attraction in Mallorca is also suitable for families and kids.
