Dairy Farm at Poas Volcano National Park
On your way through Poas Volcano National Park, you should definitely make time for a stop at the dairy farm at the Poas Volcano Lodge, this spot allowing guests an inside look at Costa Rican dairy farming. Here on the farm, your group can get involved in milk and cheese production right along with the farmers, the entire process explained in a very hands-on manner.
The tour company Corso Lecheria takes guests on a tractor ride around the farm for about an hour total, showing them the Jersey cows, newborn calves, horses, cheese production facility, and a guest favorite, the strawberry plantation. During the entire tour, you will be sampling the finest local cheeses, as well as have the opportunity to pick and eat your fill of fresh strawberries. Learn all about the berry harvesting process, which happens every three days on the farm.
This is the perfect spot to ‘do as the locals do’ and enjoy a rural adventure.
