Since time immemorial, western Asturias has witnessed the unique lifestyle of the vaqueiros de alzada (Spanish nomadic peoples in the mountains of Asturias). They were born in the ‘brañas’ (high-mountain grazing pastures) and lived by raising cattle. Migration was their livelihood. So every summer they took their dwellings to the high mountains in search of the best pastures for their cattle.
They have always been the guardians of the mountains of Asturias and, in a perfect sustainable circle, the nomads lived to care for their animals and from caring for animals they lived.
Our tribute to them is this Vaqueiro yogurt, inspired by their way of being and their customs. A creamy natural yogurt that transports us to the high mountain pastures.
The creamy texture of Vaqueiro natural yogurt is unique. It is also lighter than other similar creamy yogurts, since it has 7% fat. It also has 6% more calcium than normal plain yogurt. A single yogurt provides 23% of the calcium that your body needs each day! Made with the best Central Lechera Asturiana milk, its flavour will take you to the high mountain pastures of Asturias. Enjoy it for dessert, as a snack or for breakfast. And try it with nuts, with honey, with fruit… Or in ice cream! You will find Vaqueiro natural yogurt in the dairy section of your supermarket in convenient packs of four units to share with the whole family.
