Magnificent Angelo worked for two and a half decades pulling a cart on the port of Aegina.

Finally, his owner decided to retire him and brought him to Vrouva Farm to spend his final years in peace.

He is 29 years old, in very good physical condition( for his age and occupation) and extremely good looking.As for his character... his name says it all!

Welcome home Angelo!

Artemis and Demetra

Demetra (grey) and Artemis (brown) are sister. They were separated for 20 years and reunited in Vrouva Farm. Their joy was indescribable! From then on, they are always near each other


Bebis was born in 2018. He is still so very young and also a newcomer to the farm.When he arrived , he had a bad skin condition and missed his mom a lot. Slowly , he is adjusting and is starting to be healthier and happier.


Billy came to the farm after being a family pet for many years and living in a small space. She now loves her two- story cage, underground tunnel and exercise yard. We want to find her a friend.
At Vrouva she is enjoying life and she plays an important role in fostering kittens. She loves to cuddle with them.


Bouriko came at Vrouva with a broken leg. We see him adjust and enjoying life. We are looking into a brace for his broken leg that will help him walk easier.
He is a very clever donkey. He knows how to open gats and he used to let everyone else out too until we started “Bouriko proofing” our gates. He also does this amazing acrobatic thing where he stands on his back legs to reach the branchese of the olive trees and eats them.

the Chickens

Vrouva Farm is against sexism and values the roosters as much as the hens. The roosters have their own enclosure where they live a monastic life together with the sheep

the Goats

Our goats are Olive, Beauty and her daughter Irene. Two of them are wild  goat mixes and the third a domestic breed. All three are very close and always plan their (many) mischiefs together.


She is and absolute darling! Smart, friendly and so very cute, she has us all at her beck and call. We try not to show how smitten we are  so as not to make Suzie jealous.


Hope is the first rescue cow to be rescued from slaughter in Greece. Her rescuer spent a lot of time and effort in keeping her alive and to make sure she would arrive at Vrouva Farm safely. Hope herself things she is totally worth all this afford. She definitely knows she is special and can be naughty sometimes. She especially likes to knock over the waterbowl..
But she also likes affection and when she looks at you with her beautiful eyes, she can make everything all right again.  


was born in 1991.
He worked all his life as a carriage horse and gained the nickname kilometre counter because of of his hard work and endurance. When he retired, Alia , his guardian angel, spoted him on a field strugling to eat the hard fry grass and brought him to the farm. Since then our life’s mission is to fatten him!
He is a calm and gentle old guy but doesn’t like humans very much.

Manolis and Jina

Manolis ended up in Vrouva because of his ‘bad’ character. Jina, young, kind and beautiful was just temporary but fell in love with Manoli and so she stayed. The two are inseparable!


she was abandoned because she was too old to work. Since then 12 years have passes and the sweet old girl is still enjoying her life. She loves to cuddle with people.
Hope, the cow, adores Margarita and often licks her, which means that Margarita often has very trendy hairstyles. Hope’s saliva acts like gel and leaves Margarita’s hair in all sorts of funny shapes.

the Sheep

The first 2 sheep, Ashka and Buck ,came to Vrouva  Farm in 2012. Nionios and Azur are their offspring and were born at the farm.Theodora is the black sheep of the family( literally!) , was exchanged for 3 sacs of corn and was heading for the oven when a kindhearted volunteer intervened and saved her. Our sheep are a very tightly knit and loving family and have a calming effect on the whole farm. They don’t trust humans too much.


Suzy was also saved from slaughter. Her rescuer brought her to the farm after neighbours complained.
We love to take care of crazy Suzy with her pranks. She has made new friends at Vrouva and enjoys sharing her land with the chickens.
