About Us

Queso Palmita is an authentic Venezuelan business dedicated to the production of handcrafted cheese and cheese made recipes to integrate Hispanic and American cultures. The products are geared towards free-spirited individuals in both the Hispanic and American community who are adventurous, inquisitive and are always looking for “something more…”, a healthy alternative with an international flavor. These delicacies take time and expertise to prepare.

Queso Palmita was developed with the idea of providing to that growing Hispanic community in the United States, the opportunity of having access to and enjoying a homemade product of the highest quality at low cost, which maintains all of the tradition and taste of the Latin American cheeses. The end product is natural and preservative-free. This family owned business dedicates itself to applying both a twenty year experience in handcrafted cheese production acquired in Venezuela and its current client base to introduce the Queso Palmita and other cheese related recipes to the Hispanic and American communities.

Our Tradition

For us to make cheese is to continue a tradition dating back to 1,910 when our ancestors began in the Rancho LA FRAGUA located in Barranquita de Perija, continuing in Rancho LA TAMAIBA in La Villa del Rosario and Rancho SAN MIGUEL at Km 40 Carretera a Perija, Zulia State, Venezuela. 

It is a learned craft of the best Masters, with craftsmanship and passion to make a product to feed the family and fill your spirit with the best of our traditions.

It's something in our blood and we are proud, and we pride ourselves in the development of a healthy and hygienic process beyond our borders, complying with the standards set without losing the essence Hand Crafted Cheese.
