It is between the Pic du Midi d'Ossau and the Iraty forest, in the Basque Country, that the Pure Sheep Pyrenees cheeses were born. Derived from an agro-pastoral system, sheep's cheese was an exchange value, the first source of income for the shepherds on that territory.
The pastoral tradition produces a perfect Basque cheese and provides a valuable activity for the Pyrénées mountains.
