It was absolutely amazing! Debra B.

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.

Was very pleasant and relaxing experience! Jakub Staš

Me and my family visited the cheese making experience in the late autumn to learn more about the local tradition of cheese production as well as to get our hands on experience making some cheeses. The whole experience was run by Cristina and she walked us through the process as well as the history of the establishment. After making some cheeses, we were introduced to the matured versions of them to taste. Pairings were very local, seasonal and absolutely delicious. Shout out to the pumpkin jam which was served with the soft spread and walnuts. After this, we were treated to the three course dinner which was also sourced locally and tasted delicious! This was very pleasant and relaxing experience.
