  • Learn how cheese is made in Belize
Description
When you think of Belize, you probably don’t think of cheese, but there are some great dairy farms in Belize! Tour a small farm in Calla Creek, Belize that specializes in goat cheese. Nina and her family will show you around their farm, which you must access a boat across the river. The farm contains goats, cows, horses, and other animals, as well as a variety of crops, including towering, ancient trees. After touring the farm, Nina will show you the process of making goat cheese and let you sample fresh goat milk and cheese. Another option is touring Ian Anderson’s lodge on the beautiful Hummingbird Highway near Belmopan. These artisan cheeses are made with organic full cream milk, and there are a variety of cheeses to choose from. Sample the cheeses, choose your favorite, and take it along on your picnic lunch to the ruins, caves, or waterfalls!
