Pulque Tour Plus: Aguamiel Harvest in the Field with Zapotec Dinner

Even Oaxacans rarely if ever have an opportunity to accompany an indigenous family into the fields for the aguamiel harvest. And most, certainly of the middle classes, typically don’t ever have a chance to break bread with them. You do it all, learning about pulque first hand, assisting in the phases of production, and spending a couple of hours chatting, learning, eating and drinking, and listening to music, all right in their home alongside members of their family.
