Our Producer

Inserted in the demarcated area of Serra da Estrela cheese production, our farm produces curried sheep cheese, cottage cheese, goat cheese, and mix cheese.

For the process of the cheese, our farmers use a cynara cardunculus plant, commonly known as cardo — a natural cocktail of the traditional recipe of Serra da Estrela cheese.

The coagulant of plant origin results from the mixture of ground plant and sea salt. Being raw milk, it contains the microorganisms that are necessary for the fermentation of the cheese.
