The ostrich farm

Watching ostriches only a few metres from you allows you to see the dimensions of these birds, the largest in the world, that can grow to a height of 3 metres when adult. This ecological farm, located 5 minutes from Villa de Leyva offers dishes such as hamburgers and sausages made of ostrich meat. Each ostrich egg weighs between 1,200 and 1,800 grammes and is the equivalent of 24 hen eggs.


Houses that are museums, an ostrich farm and a festival in which the tomato is the protagonist are some plans to enjoy in Villa de Leyva and its surroundings.
