The cheese your was so informative. It left me wanting to go buy a few pounds of cheese. Silvia's tours are always jam packed with good information & tips. She always shares contact information for herself, & if she is with others their information as well.

Silvia was amazing guide for the tour. As a cheese fanatic, it was very interesting to learn about the process of cheese making. Amazed by this, what it seems to be a little farm, can produce so much cheese and cheese products. Too bad the connection didn't work out perfectly, but Silvia did what she could to give us the tour. Her husband was very helpful sending links too. Thanks to you, I learned about the greatness of seadas and hope I can make some. Grazie!

So cool to see pecorino cheese being produced! As Silvia said, sometimes you need to sacrifice technology for nature preservation. I was fascinated by the process and the preservation of traditional techniques. A must for cheese lovers!
