Hacienda Chan Chan dairy products

Greetings to all of you out there. We hope that you are continuing to stay safe and healthy. This Wednesday we will be doing drop-offs at Tienda Nectar (open at 11 AM), San Sebastian Smokehouse (10 AM - 4 PM) and Dos Sucres (10 AM/Wednesday) along with home deliveries. Home deliveries in Cuenca are $2 with a minimum order of $12.

This week for our cheeses we have our tasty cheddar. Nothing beats some delicious cheddar for a grilled cheese or with wine and crackers. We also are offering our amazing Montasio. Our Montasio is a creamy, un-pasteurized cow’s milk cheese originating from the Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto provinces of Italy. It was originally a monastery cheese but today it is produced following an age-old traditional recipe. The history of Montasio production dates back to the mid-13th century, when it was supposedly first created by a monk from the abbey of Moggio, in the province of Udine, under the jurisdiction of which lay all the mountain dairy huts on the Montasio massif in the Julian Alps, hence the name. It has a sweet, smooth, delicate flavor which becomes more pronounced with aging. This Montasio is 4 months old. Order early as we are down to our last wheel of this tasty delight.

All of our cheeses are made here on the farm with whole milk from our grass-fed mix of Jersey, Montbéliard and Holstein cows. The milk used in our cheese making is free of antibiotics and taken only from our cows. Because the cheese is an artisan cheese, each batch has its own unique characteristics. All of the cheeses this week are $7/lb.

Also available for purchase is our Greek yogurt ($2/lb), milk ($1.25/liter), cream ($2/liter), and cottage cheese ($4/lb). Please send in your orders for this week by noon on Tuesday and let us know if it will be a delivery or pick-up at one of the locations listed above.

Please check out our website ( for pictures of the farm, cows and our cabins that give you a chance to get away from it all. With little to no contact if you want, our cabins are a great retreat option for you and/or your family during these times. We also allow come enjoy some fresh air with your furry buddy. Explore our hiking trails, interact with all of the animals or simply sit by the fire and enjoy the peace and quiet. All of our cabins come with heaters and fireplaces to keep you warm at night. Try a night in our treehouse, perhaps the highest treehouse in the world (elevation-wise). Let us know if you are interested or have any questions.

We appreciate your business and wish you all the best of health.

Wednesday, August 5th, Tienda Nectar (el Centro), Smokehouse (across the street from San Sebastian park) and Dos Sucres (Roberto Crespo Toral 3-56) 10 AM
