Hacienda La Collpa is dedicated to raising cattle, sheep, and other animals. The farm is well known for its unique practice of calling cows by name. The cows are called to come be milked individually by name, and incredibly, they respond. Rumor has it that the farm’s original owner began the naming process by giving one cow the name of his wife. Watching these cows may make you rethink bovine intelligence.
Also on this farm is a beautiful chapel, workshop, and a man-made lagoon decorated with small bridges and surrounded by gardens. Ducks and swans sometimes inhabit the waters of this lagoon.
This dairy farm plays an important role in the local economy, as it produces a huge amount of milk, cheese, and other dairy products. Tour participants will have the opportunity to purchase some of these items at the end of the tour.
