It was absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend doing this.The family on the farm were very nice. I learnt a lot about cheese-making. They cooked us up a traditional Portuguese meal which was yummy. It was good to see all the farm animals.

Unforgettable moments of good mood, socialization between tourists and agricultural learning in a private farm. Fantastic! We had a really great moment learning how to do cheese and we finish with a great lunch!
