Farm Historical Background
The farm history goes back to about 12 years ago, when the Petrides farm began an egg production unit in the small village of Marki. The village of Marki is located near the Tseri village in Nicosia, and has 5 residents.
The chicken and egg production business decided to extend its activities, by creating a farm that would be enjoyed by everyone and which would allow the experience of coming into contact with the animals, collecting eggs and participating in games. It would also be a place of relaxation in a beautiful natural environment.
Trails of 2, 5 kilometres were made, many farm animals arrived at the farm such as sheep, goats, ostriches and three football fields were created. The fields were particularly made for the use of playgrounds and battle arenas. The area would therefore be suitable for both children and adults.
