Brie is back, Hacienda Chan Chan

Good day to all of you in Cuenca and nearby.

This week we are happy to offer a tasty variety of cheeses. Our Brie is back and available in half-pound wheels. Tasty on its own or matched with a baquette, you'll be in heaven. Also available is a town favorite among many...our Peppercorn Parmesan. Creamy with a touch of pepper, perfect sliced on crackers or grated over veggies and pasta. Our creamy Parmesan is not as dry as your typical Parmesan as it is made with whole milk from our happy cows. We are also offering a Swiss that we've held back that is now nearly 5 months old for those of you who love a strong Swiss. Last but never least, we have our Cheddar also available. So many choices or just try them all. Our Brie is $8/lb and the Parmesan, Swiss and Cheddar are $7/lb. Order early.

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.

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 today 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, Sept.23rd, Tienda Nectar (el Centro), Smokehouse (across the street from San Sebastian park) and Dos Sucres (Roberto Crespo Toral 3-56) 10 AM
