In 1983 Rafael Baez retired from his working life as a civil engineer and opened a dairy in the valley of the Tietar River in Avila. Here, where lush pastures fed the herds of local goats was where he decided was the ideal place to source his raw materials. 25 years later the dairy is still producing remarkable cheeses.
