Slow Food Day: let’s make cheese!

Slow Food Day at Podere il Casale: now it’s time to make cheese!




Sunday, April 2 at Podere Il Casale Pienza we’ll celebrate the Slow Food Day. We will show you up close how we make our organic raw milk cheese. From grazing, to milking, and from the dairy to tasting!

Sunday, April 2 from 15:00 to 18:00 at Podere Il Casale. The farm will become for a day a “fun fair” for gourmets! You will have a map that will guide you to discover all the attractions: milking, cheese production, the dairy, the restaurant and many other surprises…

“Discovering the Val d’Orcia flavour” is back, a series of events promoted by Slow-Food Montepulciano-Chiusi. Our events will lead you to discover the excellence of this beautiful land, respecting the seasonal nature and tradition, showing you all the secrets. And remember that the greatest secret is just that in our productions… there are no secrets!

Slow Food Day: from milking to Pecorino Cheese

Spring, you know, is the best time for the 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: Slow Food Day!

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 Ulysses will show you how we make the 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.

For the occasion, you can taste the different types of our organic Pecorino cheese matched with a glass of the wine DOC Orcia Marco Capitoni and focaccia bread with organic flour milled at Mulino Val d’Orcia.

All activities will take place from 15:00 to 18:00.
