An unforgettable sensorial experience that includes smell , taste & sight : visiting a small family run cheese factory on Pistoia’s hill.
A slow food product called :’raw milk pecorino cheese ‘ entirely made with sheep milk not boiled, to preserve the aroma & the proprieties of the fresh milk .
Hand made , organic , healthy , organic , tasty : could you ask more to a cheese?
yes , to see how it is really made!
This is what you can see here & also ricotta cheese with its typical light flavour that only pure, simple goodies can offer you since centuries, still made in the same old way.
Taste it warm is one of the best experience in life : you could never forget how smooth it is & how it brings you back to the past when everything seemed to be pure , white & perfect as this product .
Ricotta in Italian means : ‘cooked twice’ as it is the result of the second heating of the milk after having made cheese.
Daniele is a young shepherd & decided to carry on his family business started first with his grandfather , with his girlfriend Valentina : an entire life dedicated to sheep as they are part of the family and can never stay alone!
He looks after them , loving them & finding for them new fields where to eat better fresh grass, keeping them in the shadow during the day, moving to another location during the night, trying to protect them from the wolfs , yes as on children tales ! we also have this pradator in our hills so close to town, amazing…
Sheeps know Daniele & he knows them : he has some favourites too , some wearing red ribbons just to make them nicer ! they are not afraid of him , he can touch them & when he talks to them it’s look like they understand him . Daniele’s father & grandfather won many awards beacause of sheep beauty, shape & as good milk producer.
