This was an experience we were looking forward to and were not disappointed...only in that we couldn't take more of their sheep's milk Idiazal cheese, not to mention, yogurt they served along with it. What a wonderful event! We held baby sheep, met the children, sister and wife of the shepherd and watched the sheep dog run the sheep out to the field. It was inspiring to be in the countryside and to learn the deep history of shepherding in this part of the world along with meeting the entire family involved in running the farm and learning their family history. Ander, our guide, encouraged us to ask questions, was extremely knowledgeable and we never felt rushed! It was a thrilling yet relaxing morning trip that we would do again and highly recommend!!
