Meeting the flock
You will meet our sheep both outdoors at our farm, and in their shed. There you will see what they eat, along with an explanation of their daily routine and how we take care of them in each season of the year.
Discovering our farm
On a guided tour around Adarrazpi we will tell you about our daily work, you will meet the flock, see where they live, the milking room, and of course the dairy where we make our produce.
Milk, our fundamental ingredient
From the sheep shed we move on to the room where we obtain our main ingredient: milk. We explain how we milk the sheep, and how we take care of them during the process to guarantee their well-being at all times.
From the milking room, we move straight on to the dairy where we make our cheese. There we will give you a step-by-step explanation of how we produce our cheeses and dairy produce. Ready to try your hand making cheese with our team?
