LONG FAMILY TRADITION
Finca Pascualete is a family run business whose origins date back to the beginning of the XIII Century. In 1232 Don Fernán Ruiz Altamirano, after helping in the conquest of Trujillo, was given this land that is today Finca Pascualete, located in the heart of Extremadura’s pasture lands. It is here where, for centuries various generations of farmers have been supplementing their families’ diets by making cheeses from their sheep’s milk. Over time their recipes evolved, competing amongst each other to see who could achieve the most exquisite flavour, as well as creating varieties of cheeses that could be stored during months in their primitive stone huts.
Crowned by an old mansion from Romanic origin, the estate finds itself nestled in a unique environment, thanks to the Magasca and Tamuja Rivers which run through it. On the estate one finds forests filled with Holm Oaks, Cork Oaks and many herbs and spices, like rockrose, juniper, thyme, tender leaves of the blackberry bush, and rosemary, which provide their livestock with a natural diet.
