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 take you Azorean style to the pasture where our adult cows are grazing. There, in the center of all our cows, you’ll understand why we’re a sustainable dairy farm all while petting our cows and experiencing each of their unique behavior. Then you’ll help us walk the cows from pasture to the milking barn (just like you see other farmers do on the streets throughout the island - the so called "cow jams"). While the cows snack at the milking barn, we’ll take you through a scenic drive to meet our teenage cows. Afterwards, you can see the baby calves and then we begin the milking where you are welcome to experience milking a cow yourself by hand and with the machine. We end with a picnic-style tasting of the fresh milk you just milked and other local delights. The tour starts between 3:30pm - 4:30pm, depending on the time of year, and lasts about 2.5 – 3 hours.

Other things to note:
Our tour is offered rain or shine as the idea is to get a taste of an Azorean farmer's life...our work must go on no matter what the weather. We do however, do what we can to keep you within your comfort limits.

We are the owners of The Farm (by ÂMAGO). My husband is a 3rd generation Azorean dairy farmer and I have a background in Sustainable Development and Holistic Health. We have been working tirelessly to bring food production and human health FULL CIRCLE by converting our farm into one that benefits the environment, produces products that nourish the human body, and to get eaters to know their food and their farmer. We are currently studying to become farmers certified in holistic management and regenerative agriculture.

We'll sweep you away from tourist spots and immerse you in the green pastures of our holistic management farm overlooking the ocean. You'll see local farmers, cows, birds, wild rabbits, and a surprise native mammal. Like most local farms, our pastures are spread throughout the village, giving you the opportunity to explore the back roads with us and take in stunning views before stopping at our milking barn to milk the fresh milk you can taste.

A great experience! Gena and her husband were super generous in opening up on their life at the farm. Close interaction with their animals, it was super informative yet in a friendly and approachable way. Inspiring people much worth meeting!

This was the best thing to decide to do this trip! These two were absolutely adorable in how they treated the animals as well as how they organised the whole tour. With so much love for the detail! This will always be kept in my mind and I absolutely can recommend this to everyone who is interested in a perfect organised, sustainable and animalfriendly farming experience

Of all the things you do in the Azores — visit this farm!! TLDR: This is an idyllic place to spend an afternoon, and learn first-hand about the thought and care that goes into a farm that is environmentally sustainable and taking good care of its animals. Standing high on a hill side pasture, with ocean views forever, on a sunny afternoon surrounded by happy cows munching on lush green grass — that was the setting for listening to the farmers describe how they approach farming, and their lives growing up between Azores and American culture. The cows are charmers — nuzzling up against, nibbling on your arms, ducking the heads to get scratched. The baby cows were so much fun to visit in the barn, all wobbly and curious! Learning to milk the older cows was fantastic - old school straight into a pail and the real way, through a milking machine. Capped off the day eating cheese made on the farm and trying their raw milk, while sitting on a blanket overlooking the ocean. They are incredible host, this real care fir their land and animals and real talent for sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm with guests.

This will defenitely the best souvenir of our São Miguel’s family holidays. Discovering Gena’s and João’s life, 2 passionate persons, totally immersed in the nature, and in their farm with their cows, was a fantastic experience. Carressing, walking, feeding, and milking their cows was a wonderful experience for our 3 kids (8, 5 and 1,5 yearly), they loved it! Definitely a « must do » experience on the island.

The experience was amazing! Gena and her husband were very welcoming and took a lot of time to tell us their story and answer our numerous questions about the farm life. We got up close with the cows and were able to pet and milk them. I can definitely recommend taking this tour if you are interested in the life of a dairy farmer!

My 17-year old daughter and I had a wonderful experience with Gena and her husbond (and their cows!). Not only was it a fantastic introduction to Azorean dairy farming, but it was a great introduction to the island, it's history, and culture. It's amazing what a special experience this was and it is really not to be missed if you truly want a true taste of living on the Azores.
