Volterra is famous throughout the world for its history of Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Renaissance cities; for its unique landscape of cliffs, gullies and terrestrial graves; for its traditional alabaster processing in artisan shops. It is in this context of open territory and cultural deposit that Lischeto livestock farm operates and where the new but ancient craft of the cheese-maker arises. The farm keeps and develops the traditions of typical tastes of sheep breeding in Tuscany and works only the milk of the sheep present on the farm.
The local produce like the cheese pecorino are made up of raw milk, not dealt thermally, like in the millenarian tradition of cheesemaking: those are type of cheeses difficult to work, by now rare to find, but with an unmistakable taste, synthesis of technological rigor and ancient knowledge.
Today we visit the farm and participate at the cheese laboratory, to learn the techniques of cheese production and make your own cheese! Lunch is served at the farm with Km 0 products.
In the afternoon we will explore the nearby town of Volterra.
To complete your experience, it is possible to add the following services (on request):
Volterra is an unmistakably medieval-looking city, where it is still possible to enjoy the atmosphere of an ancient village, whose authenticity is protected by the relative isolation that limited the development of the center in the industrial era, safeguarding the city from building speculation.
In Volterra history has left its mark with continuity from the Etruscan period to the nineteenth century: the city is rich in artistic evidence of great importance, to be admired walking through the streets of the historic center and visiting the city museums, such as the Etruscan one, the Pinacoteca , the Museum of Sacred Art, or the Ecomuseum of Alabaster.
