Azienda agricola Del Vecchio – Produzione formaggio da latte bovino

The heart of the structure is the  stable, in which live about 40 “girls”, so Irma Del Vecchio, the owner, calls her 40Brown Swiss cows. There are also some calves which are bred for the meat, but the bulk of production is related to the milk used to produce butter and cheese.

2. Slow principles

During the summer, the cows are able to graze outside.The animals are fed mainly on hay, to which is added to the flour corn and very little feed. In the laboratory of cheese the cheese is prepared over an open fire with a beautiful copper boiler. Here an old wooden mechanism is still running allowing the boiler to move by turning on itself.  The cheeses are then made to mature in the cellar with natural procedures and sold directly on the farm or in markets and fairs.
