Goats and cheese galore

We visited this goat farm after visiting the winery co-owned by the same family. Apparently they started the goat farm because they needed goat manure for their vineyards. Then... read more

We were interested in going on the tour of this farm but the staff didn't seem overly enthused in giving it. I'll admit that our Spanish is a bit average but all the woman needed to do was slow down and explain slowly what was happening. As far as we could tell she told us to just wander around by... More

We visited this goat farm after visiting the winery co-owned by the same family. Apparently they started the goat farm because they needed goat manure for their vineyards. Then 400 goats and 20 cows later, a fully-fledged cheese operation. If you are taken to visit this place on a tour with one of the few English-speaking guides in the regions... More

This cheese farm is in an absolutely beautiful location. We had our own tour guide who took us to this place and conducted a tour, explaining the cheese making process. That was good, but watching the goats, tasting the cheese and enjoying the surroundings was enough for us. Very enjoyable visit.

If you don't know Spanish (I don't) the tour is not that informative. (Luckily, my daughter is fairly fluent and she helped.) It's nice to see and feed the goats (you can buy corn kernels at the cheese shop before you go), but I wasn't thrilled to see them sawing off the horns of some of the goats. (I'd never... More

If you love cheese, go and do the tour here! I am from Wisconsin, the dairy state of the USA, but have never actually seen and learned how my favorite food is made. Rather than cows, which they do actually have here, I learned the process with goats and then got to try the most delicious goat cheese I have... More

We rented bikes and rode out to the goat farm. It was a fun ride and we enjoyed the tour, though our elementary Spanish made for only limited comprehension. The cheese sampling at the end of our tour was yummy and we decided we'd order some to snack on at their picnic tables outside, but when we went to order... More

Unfortunately the tour was in Spanish but not to be deterred I thought there would be something interesting to see. Just a couple of goats, an empty milking shed and some cheese behind a glass door. There was however some good cheese to be tried at the end.

It was very cool to take a tour of this establishment, and you actually learn quite a bit about the process of making goat cheese! I was never a real fan of goat cheese from the States but they have six different versions of it that are seriously incredible. Good tour, good cheese, goes well with their wine!
