Recommend to those who want to learn about Aruban culture and food. The food preparation was fun and James was very knowledgeable. Best part was dinner with a sunset!
Highly Recommend!

This was a great experience and we can't recommend enough. That being said, I think it's important to point out that the 'farm' is only about 2 acres. I think many people who think 'farm' think several acres. This did not detour us or keep us from having an amazing time. James was a top notch host and truly makes the experience. The food prep was fun and tasted amazing! If you are looking for something out of the ordinary water / shopping port experience, this is a must!!!

A unique and great experience

My husband and I are on our honeymoon and we wanted to experience something new. There are plenty of water sports or cruises available on the beach but we saw this on Viator and it stood out. It did start off a little rocky because our taxi could not find the location but once we arrived it was great. Our guide James was knowledgeable and welcoming. We learned about different native Aruban plants and we cooked a dish as a group. The tour group attendants all got along well And we all sat down to eat together. Overall it was a one of a kind experience and I recommend it to anyone looking to do something different.

Unique and fun experience

My friends and I really enjoyed this experience. You learn a lot about Aruba and what this farm is doing with regards to growing food on this desert island. Towards the beginning they made us fresh smoothies which were so refreshing and good. The cooking part was fun and laid back. It was delicious food using the ingredients grown right on the farm. We all sat at a table to eat while watching the sun go down. We met new people who were really nice. We all enjoyed ourselves. This is definitely worth checking out because its something different outside of all the water sports the island has. Keep in mind they don't provide pick up and drop off so make sure you have a car or take a cab. We got a little lost trying to find it but we made it.

Amazing Must Do Experience

What an amazing experience this was. My husband and I were looking to do something unique during our visit on the island and boy did this live up to its expectations. Upon arrival, we were introduced to our tour guide James. James explained to our group about the farm, crops, purpose of the program, owner/history of the house, provided a tour of the farm as well as the on site rentals. This place was beautiful. It was amazing to see the plants and animals as well as how these plants are grown in the tropical climate of Aruba. We were able to pick some plants, feed some goat and then we were taken to the outdoor kitchen. This kitchen over looked the entire island. There were water views, mountain views, farm views, simply gorgeous. We (a group of 8 all together) began to cook our dinner. We chopped, diced, seasoned and cooked a traditional dish - which of course I cannot spell. We had a smoothie provided to us by the staff which was made from fresh ingredients from the farm. Water was passed around throughout the tour as it can be hot in Aruba. Once our meal was cooked, we sat at a long farmhouse table under a large palpya hut. The food was great! They provided us with a started of soup while our food was cooking. The soup was fantastic - again all made from ingredients from the farm. James was so knowledgable and hospitable. If you are looking for a one of kind experience - THIS IS IT!
