Eating organic is good for your health

Food substantially influences our lives by dictating the timing of our lives: breakfast when we wake up, lunch in the middle of the day and dinner at the end of the day, with all the various snacks we may or may not indulge in. It is therefore clear that the importance of choosing what to eat is fundamental to trying to have a healthy and balanced lifestyle. And our organic cheeses fit the bill,...

From the land to the table

Today we’d like to start by telling you the story of how our cheese is made. To do this, however, it is necessary not to start from the stable, but from the ground up.

The dairy of Turrida

Creating a closed-cycle organic farm was Graziano Zanello’s dream. With the acquisition of Latteria di Turrida, the dream has come true.

Space is key to cow welfare on organic farms

Azienda Agricola La Sisile has chosen to invest a lot of energy in the research of animal welfare. The quantity and quality of space available to the cows is a key consideration.

The cowshed is organised...

Why is stable grassland important for hay milk production?

The term ” permanent grass land” refers to natural meadows in which spontaneous grasses grow without human intervention: no ploughing, no tillage, just mowing. Before the advent of modern agriculture, the permanent meadows were the natural setting in which all the historical events of Friuli took place. The permanent meadows in the Friuli Venezia Giulia territory represent a precious...

The places of origin of Montasio

St. Gallen Abbey – today a cloistered monastery – was founded in 1085 by the Patriarch of Aquileia Frederick of Moravia.
