out and about on the marrakech plain & amongst the jbilet mountains a whole day tour
As well as crop farming, livestock farming too will be seen. Everyone in the family takes a turn at tending the grazing needs of the family’s sheep and goats. If visiting in the springtime you’ll clearly appreciate just why the milk, butter and meat tastes so good - the meadow grasses and flowers are so abundant (e.g. red poppies).
Depending on the season, many interesting activities of rural life as it unfolds daily will be seen - sowing, harvesting, tending the plants and processing the produce. much is still done by hand with the aid of donkeys. Visits to “les artisanal”, the skillful craftspeople (e.g. traditional metalworking) can also be incorporated.
Many stops will be made, to view, to photograph and, of course, to experience the wonderful hospitality of the people. Traditional refreshments and foods will be enjoyed (a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach!). Eating a “second breakfast” (a traditional meal that fits the daily rural schedule of chores) is a delight; olives, butter, bread, eggs, mint tea, all ingredients most likely to have been grown within a few hundred metres of your table. If you also wish to have lunch this can be either in a traditional farmer’s home or as a picnic in a glorious location; again, the food will be traditional, tasty and very healthy.
For those who wish to stretch their legs a little bit more, then there are many gentle rambles to be enjoyed. Rising above the Marrakech Plain are outcrops of granite that from low hills and boulder fields. their shapes and landforms are very varied, offering intriguing little sorties to explore their hidden gems.
