The Queijo do serro cheese is made from raw cow's milk and originates from the various towns of Brazil like Serro, Alvorada de Minas, Conceição do Mato Dentro, etc. This cheese has a yellowish-white colour, smooth cylindrical shape and weights about 700 grams. The cows from where the milk is produced are raised on a pasture, which gives it a distinctive flavour. The cheese has a slightly sour taste. It is produced by about 1000 people and 90% of it is sold out to the retailers.
