OUR CHEESE, THE TASTE OF A JOB WELL DONE.
At Serra del Tormo we believe that making cheese is much more than a trade: it is a vocation. That is why we wanted to recover the best cheesemaking tradition to give shape to each of our pieces. The love for a job well done is the secret of our cheeses, where soil and effort merge to create an exceptional flavor.
We make all the cheeses only with the milk of our sheep, which we feed with optimal quality cereals grown by ourselves. In this way we can guarantee a completely artisanal production process, which results in a first quality cheese production.
Our sheep are the secret of Serra del Tormo cheeses and that is why we pay all attention to taking care of them and feeding them with top quality cereals grown on our land. For more than 30 years we have been dedicated to cattle breeding in an artisanal way, taking care of our sheep on a daily basis.
A privileged location between the Ebro and the Tormo
We are in the region of Ribera d’Ebre, next to the river and a few kilometers from the Priorat. We raise our sheep in the unbeatable surroundings of Serra del Tormo, the mountainous area that gives us our name. From our farms you can contemplate the magnificent landscape that accompanies Lo Tormo, the emblematic peak that crowns the mountain range.
