GAZTAÑADITXULO CHEESE PRODUCTION

Gaztañaditxulo farmhouse is located in a village called Idiazabal, in Goierri or the so called Basque Highlands, a natural environment surrounded by forests and meadows. That’s precisely the natural resource that ties us to our lifestyle: sheepherding

Keeping our ancestors’ mores and combining them with technological progress, our main goal is to obtain high quality milk, always in line with the bio-sustainability. While making each cheese, we hope the consumer to enjoy also the hard work, the effort and the lifestyle it carries in its taste.

The work is carried out with modern resources, but we make sure to keep the essence of sheepherding, respecting the rhythm of animals and nature.

The actual project started in the old stable that was in the basement of the farm, but as long as the project gained strength, it was necessary to build a new shed to ensure the welfare of the herd. We try to maintain the original facilities of the farmhouse, despite conditioning new spaces. One example is the borda or shepherd’s hut that is 200 meters up from the farmhouse and is still used as a stable;
