The origins of the company go back to the year 2001, when its founder Melchor Benítez and his two children decided to enter the fascinating world of sheep's cheese, motivated by their experience and their business concern.
As production increased, they had to make a large extension, always maintaining the artisan recipe in the production of artisanal sheep's cheese.
Its traditional and traditional production, gives rise to a high quality sheep cheese, which also influences the use of a raw material that is sheep's milk, obtained from Merino herds. This sheep feed on the abundant pastures existing in the Comarca of La Serena, producing a quality milk in contrast, taking into account its high percentage of protein and fat.
