What you'll do

We will tell you the story of our family and our farm. We explain you the breed of sheep that we have, that is different from the usual one. You will do a tour in our farm and you will see all our animals and you will can touch them by real: sheeps, lambs, goaths, horse, dogs...
And we will show you our traditional way to do the handmade organic sheep cheese.
In the end you will taste all our different kind of cheese: fresh, semiaged, most aged (about one year of age).
If the weather is nice the tasting can be done outside; on the paved courtyard in front of the garden or in our new terrace (built on the roof of an ancient brick kiln) that overlooks the fields and woods that surround our farm.
In case of bad weather the tasting will take place inside our "Bottega", a salon obtained from the renovation of an old stable, wich also is the place where we sale our products.
Other things to note
Please note that our cheese are not pasteurized, some kind of people shouldn't eat it, for example pregnant women.
Furthermore please let us know, before you come, if you have some kind of allergy.
If you can't find a day that fit for you among the scheduled ones; contact us to arrange a new day.

Wycieczka była bardzo ciekawa ale dla dzieci zbyt monotonna. Brakowało im interakcji, jakiegoś zajęcia. Farma jest piękna, relaksująca, pięknie położona. Gospodarz bardzo gościnny. Sery pyszne.

we had a great time and learnt a lot about cheese making. Took 2 boys aged 13 and they too found it interesting. It's a family run business so it was very cosy and interaction was easy. The cheese tasting was perfect....we all walked out with our favourite cheese. I really recommend.

Was absolutely lovely here. Magical farm surrounded by forested hills, many types of farm animals and three adorable dogs. I love the construction of the farm and all the details like the kiln in property and how they draw and filter thier own water from the ground. Amazing place and lovely, friendly people.
