Visit a Galician farm and learn the traditional way of making cheese in Lugo, Spain​

The Arqueixal farm was born from an idea 25 years ago. In order to preserve the traditional way of life and production, a local family decided to renovate their farm located in the heart of Galicia. They now produce, thanks to the milk of the 35 cows of their herd, two types of cheeses and a yogurt combining ancestral traditions and respect for the environment. 

You will visit the hamlet in which the Arqueixal farm is located and take the opportunity to prepare your own cheese. You will have the opportunity to discover the traditional methods used by the farm while listening to the stories and customs of the region. Finally, take a walk around the farm to identify various aromatic plants.
