Producing Pecorino, an immortal art for our country.
If you have ever wondered what it takes to produce one of the most consumed foods in Italy, well, you are in the right place. Find out why it is important to understand the production chain, protecting the environment and consumption!
Raw milk Pecorino, the excellence of the beautiful country!
Milk, rennet and salt. Three simple ingredients that – properly dosed – give life to one of the favorite foods of Italians: cheese. As with all seemingly simple things, the equation milk + rennet + salt is subject to quite a few variables, which is why, from a basic recipe, we can get such different results!
If we then talk about Italian cheese, the variants increase, even if only with the variation of the type of milk chosen! Between sheep, goat, or cow’s milk, in fact, there are important nutritional differences, which is always appropriate to deepen when you buy!
Raw milk Pecorino represents an excellence of our country, exported all over the world and the perfect ingredient for delicious recipes, it is the authentic expression of a strong territory like Tuscany, able to give unique scents and flavours, also thanks to the biodiversity that characterizes the area.
A day on the farm, a fun way to love our territory!
There is only one way to get to know the production chain of a food as traditional as it is particular as the pecorino cheese: experience the entire production process, from milking to making the cheese.
With such an experience it will be possible not only to know all the aspects of the sheep’s life, learning what is the balance that is established between animal and territory, then being able to better understand why we love so much the taste of this cheese.
Moreover, it will be pleasant to deepen the different maturing periods in a tasting path that you can share with those you love the most, combining an important didactic moment with the beauty of being together.
Prepare your own cheese, the truest form of awareness.
After all, you learn by doing, and the same goes for lPecorino! What could be more stimulating, in fact, than to put into practice what you learn during the day on the farm! Creating your own cheese is the most important moment to reconnect with the outside world, understanding on your skin what it means to produce a quality product every day and at the same time respectful of animal life.
Experiences of this kind are very useful even for children, who will be able to live a very different day in contact with nature and animals, thus developing a deep empathy, but above all, learning immediately to understand the hard work behind food production!
