On the last Saturday of every month guests of Princesa Yaiza will have the chance to discover the source of the resort’s award-winning food and explore where their food comes from on a tour of theFinca De Uga‘quesería’ with the resort’s chef Victor Bossecker. The Finca De Uga is no ordinary farm, the landscaped property houses animals in large enclosures in beautiful surroundings and maintains the highest welfare standards. The 60 Jersey cows, 400 Majorera goats and 250 Canarian sheep are nurtured with a special diet and plenty of care and affection, including listening to music each day!

The farm supplies only a very few restaurants on the island and guests will be lucky enough to feast on this produce at Princesa Yaiza’s award-winning Isla de Lobos restaurant which offers a specially crafted menu that focuses on local produce and traditional Canarian recipes.
