Bauma

Started in 1980, Toni Chueca, owner and master cheese maker, was a pioneer in the recovery of the cheeses typical from Catalonia, including Garrotxa Bauma. The Bauma dairy, located in Borredà, now is owned by a collection of goat farmers who sell their milk to Bauma, most notably David Blanco. The environmental conditions of the region surrounding Formatge Bauma naturally foster the growth of grey-blue mold penicillium galaucum, which forms on the rind of the Garrotxa cheese.
