15:00- 18:00: Let’s make Cheese – from milking to Pecorino Cheese

From 15:00 you can experience how a cheese is born during a free of charge cheesemaking demonstration with Ulisse and our open stables and dairy. Spring, as you might know, is the best time for cheese. For this reason we want to give you the opportunity to discover first-hand the production of Pecorino di Pienza at Podere Il Casale.  Starting from the pastures and arriving to the table. The best opportunity to live a day in the farm!

Our farm will be open to everybody and you can attend all the phases of the cheese production and of course taste the cheese… It starts from the stable where our pastors will show you the milking and if you want you could try! With fresh milk you switch to the production of cheese: our master cheese maker Ulisse will show you how we make Pecorino cheese starting from milk.

The next stop is the dairy, where you can visit the maturing rooms. You will see how we produce every kind of cheese: aged, fresh, flavored, refined, goat and many other surprises. The final step will be the tasting of our cheeses. For the occasion, you can taste the different types of our organic Pecorino cheese.
