We read about the farm lunch on their website and reserved it in advance. Were we happy that we did! Sergio came and got us at our room and led us through the back gate over to the El Albergue's own organic farm. Two helpers were already there, and they had dug a shallow pit where they were heating up rocks over white-hot coals. They then put potatoes on the bottom rocks, layering chicken and pork on the next level, and finishing with lava beans and fresh herbs on top. Then they covered it all with banana leaves, covered that with a damp cloth, and covered the whole thing with dirt - making an oven. While everything was cooking, Sergio took on a tour of the farm, showing us everything that they grow there. And there's a lot! But barely 15 minutes into the tour, it was time to go eat! Everything was cooked! We watched as they uncovered the food and moved everything onto earthenware platters. They had set up a beautiful table for us and we feasted in the most perfect setting imaginable. We highly recommend doing this!
