    Live the experience of an innovative concept that has captivated Puerto Rican and visitors from around the world. Vaca Negra offers you an agrotourism and gastronomic experience in Hatillo, where you make your own cheese using raw, non-homogenized and grassfed milk.

    Come and enjoy the world of 100% aged cheeses in Puerto Rico. If you are a lover of cheese, surely every time you arrive at a party you will go directly to evaluate the table of the appetizers to make sure that they have what you like and then you go through the bar, to see that there is good wine. You, who have a special palate, should know that here in Puerto Rico you will find a delicacy prepared with the perfect ingredients to give you a pleasant taste and experience that will satisfy your uncontrollable desire.


    This cheese-making workshop is held weekly. If you have a group of more than 8 people, we can schedule it for any day you prefer. For groups of less than 10 people, each participant will make their own cheese, at a cost of $95 per person. This workshop involves careful logistics, from acquiring fresh milk from the dairy farm to the entire production process. For groups of more than 12 people, there is an option to work in pairs. When we talk about pairs, we mean two people. If they are two children, they should be at least 10 years old, and if it is an adult with a child, the minimum age is 5 years.

    Workshop Description:

    Part I: We begin with a detailed explanation of how mature cheeses are made, addressing the particular characteristics of dairy products. In addition, we cover all aspects of milk production on the island, from raising cows to final consumption. We explore relevant topics such as food sustainability, innovation, recycling, entrepreneurship, and marketing, all spiced up with the history of Quesos Vaca Negra Inc.’s creation.

    Part II: Next, you will enjoy a cheese tasting accompanied by select wines. One glass of wine per person is included.

    Part III: Now comes the practical part. You will make your own wheel of cheese. First, you’ll choose the spices you’ll add to your cheese (options include basil, parsley, cumin seeds, tomato basil, pepper, garlic, oregano, peppercorn, and more). The recommended amount is 1/3 of a 1-ounce shot glass. Then, you’ll select the letters or emojis that will identify your cheese. We will provide the necessary materials, which include a bowl of curd and whey, tray, mold with lid and net, gloves, and hairnet. Simply follow the instructions and create your cheese.

    Part IV: Finally, you will have the opportunity to taste our yogurts and visit our cheese cellar.

    Please note that the cheese you prepare will stay in our cellar, maturing for 2 months. We ask that you mark your calendar to pick it up from Wednesday to Sunday, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
