Fattoria Bistecca has been meticulously restored. It is surrounded by over 37 acres of grain, fields of sunflowers, alfalfa and beautiful vinyards. The farm is also home to many animals including ponies, chickens, hens, geese, ducks, doves and sheep. Our sheep are famous because they are in the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun". In the movie the sheep stop the bus in front of "Bramasole" where Frances decides to buy the house.
Lapo and Ilaria will teach you the traditional method of production and aging of Pecorino. Typically Tuscan cheese is produced from sheep milk . We don’t PASTEURIZE our milk and therefore this cheese is a raw milk cheese. It is a unique and different experience.
During the course, you will produce three types of cheese: raveggiolo, pecorino and ricotta. Our Ricotta is also mentioned in the Under the Tuscan Sun Cookbook by Frances Mayes.
The experience will end with a wonderful tasting of Tuscan bruschetta, pecorino cheese, pasta and ricotta with jam, all accompanied by good wine.
Full refunds will be issued for cancellations made at least 48 hours prior to the activity
