CHOCOLATE TOUR & DON EDUARDO FARM
Tour of the farm
Enjoy an unforgettable experience on our tour of La Finca, where we try to be as sustainable as possible by using the cattle for milk AND cheese in our restaurant. With the whey we feed the pigs and with the manure we feed the worms to produce fertilizer for the crops.
We start in the lobby of the Lodge where we will go for rubber boots and a short walk through the gardens to the dairy, where you will be able to live handmilking practices. You will also be able to visit the cheese house, the terrace of the mill where you can enjoy the delicious fresh cane juice as well as a rich product made from sugar cane.
Then we go to the vegetable garden where you will visit the crops for the restaurant, the pond of the guapotes, the laying hens, the greenhouse, the bees for honey and the pollinators of the vegetable garden.
