Our products

from the goat milk of our farm we get


Fresh and aged raw milk cheeses

At “Corte Merina” there is the small dairy where we process all the milk produced by our goats.
We work to obtain simple products: the only ingredients are milk and salt; there is no external intervention such as, for example, adding enzymes.
The goats are milked twice a day for the entire lactation period from March to October. Immediately after the milking we make cheese to obtain fresh and healthy products.
Raw milk cheese means that during the processing production, the milk doesn’t reach high temperatures, in this way all the bacterial flora and the properties of fresh milk are preserved.
After this process the cheese is stored in a naturally ventilated cellar where they ripen.

why our cheese is natural and biodivers


Cheese of different flavors

The use of raw milk and the choice to leave the goats grazing freely make our cheese a unique product of high quality and organoleptic content. The bond between the cheese and its grazing land is fundamental and it is the origin of its biodiversity.
Fresh spread cheese, ricotte and aged cheese, maintain all the flavors of the alpine herbs, taking on different shades of taste according to the milking and seasoning period.
Following a breeding method that respects the natural cycle of goats, producing in a way simple and organic is not a fad for us but the belief of working clear and transparent, as generations of farmers did before us.
