This cheese was inspired from a tradition of conserving cheese under hay. The long maturation brings the right combination of the flavor of hay, the delicate taste of honey, and the strong and pronounced taste of sheep milk cheese. Nutty, with a delicate honey sweetness and overtones of grass. Pungent yet clean.
This pecorino is made on a commune in Tuscany just north of Firenze. This farm was bought by a group of young friends in the early part of the 70’s and they have run the farm as a cooperative ever since. The farm produces cheese, meat, produce, bread, and they even breed horses for trekking. They do everything on site from the care of the sheep and milking, the cheese making, the label design and packaging.
