A traditional activity passed down from generation to generation.
With the arrival of the heat, in the summer months, the ritual of “la saca” begins in the pastures of Extremadura, the extraction of the cork planks that will later be transformed into granules and stoppers, which will be distributed to all corners of the world, ready to accompany us in millions of toasts and sustainable construction materials.
A traditional activity carried out in family groups and passed down from generation to generation.
Handlemen, cutters, slashers, gatherers and muleteers work during the summer with their axes, axes, levers, ladders and tractors. It sounds like a tongue twister, but this is how cork harvesting is done in the cork oak forests of Monfragüe. Tradition and Sustainability!
Dexterity, experience, endurance and patience are some of the arts of these crews that we invite you to join them in their cork activity during a morning in the pastures of the Monfragüe Biosphere Reserve.
