The cheesemaking tradition in Zamora dates back to ancient times. Indeed, in the Copper Age, more than 4000 years ago, cheese was made in the province. This land of herds and shepherding have produced a high-quality cheese with a strong identity. It is prepared using the milk of Churra and Castellana sheep, pure breeds which are indigenous to the province and are fed upon local crops, meadows and pastures.

Queso Zamorano is the only D.O.P. (protected designation of origin) awarded to cheeses in the region of Castilla y León and the fifth in Spain. Our cheese is exported to every country in the EU, the USA, Japan, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, Dubai and India, etc.
