Rancho Dos Hermanos has been producing artisanal cheeses since 2013. Our small-scale, handmade cheese production embodies the unique flavors derived from the local Sierra Cacachilas terroir.
Hand-milking our own goats and cows, we create traditional fresh cheeses of the region as well as our European-style cheeses with a Baja twist. Our cheeses are aged and ripened for various durations to develop distinct flavors and textures.
Rancho Dos Hermanos, one of several ranches located on the Rancho Cacachilas property, provides sweeping views of the rugged mountains, the Sea of Cortez and Isla Cerralvo. In this unique setting, just a short drive from La Paz, visitors may arrange tastings of homemade Sierra Cacachilas cheeses that are produced in our solar powered creamery, paired with beer and wine, and served with jams from wild-harvested fruits and honey from our hives.

Our Girasol and Cempasúchil cheeses won bronze medals at the October 2017 International Goat Cheese Expo in Celaya, Guanajuato. The Girasol, shown above at the bottom, is aged one month.
We also offer cheesemaking and cooking classes, as well as other low-impact living workshops.

In the spring of 2015, Dr. Carlos Peraza from La Serpentina Dairy Farm in Querétaro, Mexico presented a cheesemaking workshop. The class took place at Rancho Dos Hermanos and demonstrated basic techniques for producing refined cheeses.
