Resting at Donkey Farm Martinici

A farm where donkeys enjoy and heal in Montenegro


An active holiday on Sundays at the Donkey Farm – enjoy and be humane.

The first and only donkey farm in Montenegro was founded to protect these animals from extinction, for education, … to enjoy the unique natural environment.

It is interesting that when the owner of the Farm “Martinići” decided to create the first donkey farm in Montenegro, he was not guided by money but by the protection of this animal species that is threatened with extinction. In the meantime, he devised a way to make the farm self-sustaining, useful for children with special needs because it has been proven to help treat autism. Over 100,000 visitors visited the farm in a few years.

Less than 20 kilometres from the capital of Montenegro, Podgorica, be part of this unique agritourism story.

The ticket to the Farm is the donkey’s favorite food – fruit or vegetables

There are currently 60 donkeys on the farm in Marinići, 20 more than when this unusual household started. The farm is open to visitors only on Sundays. Entrance is paid, but not with money, but with fruit or vegetables. You can complete an active holiday in nature, hiking, with a stay and work at the Donkey Farm, depending on your interests.

On the farm, you can see a plough, a plow…various means and tools that were once needed in everyday life.

There used to be no house in Montenegro that didn’t have a donkey that was an “ally” in the difficult life in the countryside.

A visit to the Farm is an opportunity to find out how the donkey is part of the Montenegrin natural and cultural heritage, how many there were in minimal times, and how they fight for their survival in the countryside between Podgorica and Danilovgrad.

The farm is open to visitors only on Sundays

Numerous features of the Farm were the reason for this property to be on the pages of the world’s most popular media in a short period of time. Maybe you didn’t know, but every December the Donkey Ball is organized at the Farm.

The donkey is a rare animal that is mentioned in the Bible, and it is mentioned more than once. By the way, the donkey is an African animal that is almost extinct on this continent today due to the cosmetic industry and high-quality face cream – it is made from gelatin obtained by boiling donkey skin.

But in the heart of Montenegro, in the corner of Europe, at the “Martinići” Farm, donkeys are carefully cared for.

You can also buy donkey milk at the Farm, as well as visit the Donkey Museum and Visitor Center.
