Travellers reviews

I don't even know where to start. Marino is the guide that you need to have to experience Abruzzo. We spent the first part of the day in a local family-ran dairy farm, we got to make some cheese and learned all the secrets to obtain a great ricotta. The owner even showed us all of his farm animals from goats to bulls, from chickens to cows. Marino then took us to visit the beautiful town of Campli, one of the many highlights were the "Holy Stairs" (only 3 in the World)

What we will do

🧀 1

After a beautiful short panoramic drive we will get to the countryside, at Giuseppes’ farm.

For over 3 generations, Giuseppes’ family have been making cheese and breeding animals in a small family-owned farm in the Abruzzo Apennines near Teramo.

🧀 2

We will meet Giuseppe and his family and start with the cutting of the curd and then onto moulding and making the famous pecorino cheese shapes!

🧀 3

After this fun and challenging experience, we will have a taste of our cheeses, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and other home-produced delis, as well as wine and other drinks.

🧀 4

While we wait for the ricotta to arrive at temperature, we will go and see the animals of the farm: Sheep, goats, cows, veals, Pastori Abruzzesi (Abruzzo shepherd’s dog) and hangs. As well as the beautiful panorama of the ‘Gran Sasso & Monti Della Laga’ National Park and its ancient hilltop medieval villages.

🧀 5

Once the Ricotta cheese is ready, you will taste the purest and fresh(warm) Ricotta cheese.

This is the best Organic Ricotta in Abruzzo. I bet you to find a better one and I’ll offer you a dinner!

🧀 6

We end the day with you extracting with your hands the Ricotta from the pot!

*Based on milk availability the cheesemaker will decide the kind of cheeses we will be preparing that day.
