• $21 children 16 - 7 yrs & Azorean residents. Children 6 & under are free.
Pet a calf, milk a cow, taste raw milk, get immersed in the green of our island, and experience first hand what it's like to be an Azorean farmer.
The tour can change, as we’re a working farm so anything might come up and we’ll take you along to shadow us. However, the typical tour goes something like this: We set you up with mud boots and everyone hops in the back of the truck (or you can follow us, but the truck ride is usually part of the fun). We'll take you through a scenic drive to meet our teenage cows (about 15 - 20 min. away). Afterwards, we make our way back to the milking barn where you can see the baby calves. At some point you may be involved in moving the cows from pasture to the milking barn. Then we begin the milking and you are welcome to experience milking a cow yourself. We end with a picnic-style tasting of our raw milk, fresh cheese, bread, and jam.
We'll Meet in the village of Achadinha (area of Nordeste) and then we'll take you to meet our cows from there.
The tour starts at 3:30pm or 4:30pm (depending on the time of year) and typically lasts about 3 - 4 hours.
• Fun Fact: Most people that can not digest pasteurized milk, don't show any symptoms when drinking raw milk since the enzyme (lactase) that breaks down lactose is still present.
