Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: La Maremmana – Caseificio Inno al Sole, Strada Provinciale del Poggiale, 72, 58100, Grosseto Italy

The guided tour includes the dairy, the buffalo breeding and the biogas plant, with a tasting of buffalo cheeses at the end of the visit. Our agronomist will welcome you to the company and accompany you along the way. The first stop is a visit to the Dairy where guests can watch the dairy production. The cheese processing is visible from the store, which is separated from the laboratory by a glass window; for the little ones there is the possibility of watching television that shows live images of the laboratory. Then we will continue on foot, between the dairy and the stable, where it will be possible to get close to the animals and in spring and summer see the newborn calves. Meanwhile, technical explanations will be given on the breeding of livestock and on the animals themselves. The last stop on the route is the biogas plant. Once the outdoor visit is over, the group will return to the dairy’s point of sale to end the journey with a tasting of the products that were made with buffalo milk exclusively produced by the company, accompanied by salami and wines from other local companies.
The initiative aims to bring everyone closer to the world of cattle breeding and dairy production in a traditional and at the same time innovative company, which respects the cycles of nature and focuses on animal welfare and on the quality of the finished product.
