What you'll do

The experience is focused on making cheese by hands. We start from milking room, where the participants could see the milking machine that is used today but, above all, they could also try (and may be learn!) to milk the sheeps with their hands, as we used to do 30 years ago. After that we start with the real making of pecorino cheese in a beautiful basement with stone wall, that originally was a church or may be a monastery. We will use the ancient methods and tools to make pecorino cheese, that our grandparents thaught us and handed down to us. In this step the participant's collaboration will be really important (from the older one to the youngest!), they will make with their hands a little cheese wheel that they will bring with them as a souvenir of this awesome experience, but first of all as a symbol of their "work" in the noble art of cheesmaker, unfortunatly forgotten. Obviously the guests could visit the entire farm with its animals: they could feed the little lambs, they could see our chikens with their chicks and they could visit our grazing lands where they will find our allies against wolf's attacks : the guardan dogs! (Clearly during the experience there will be some pecorino cheese and oil tasting!)
