Traditional cheeses made from sheep milk from the house flock

The Cortijo de Caideros cheesery, located in north Gran Canaria is a family cheesery making traditional cheese within the Queso de Flor de Guía, Queso de Media Flor de Guía y Queso de Guía Designation of Origin. The family-owned cheesery uses milk from its own flock of some 200 sheep. This limits daily production to a range of nine traditional cheeses
