Why we chose them
"Eight steps" measures a distance, between the milking room and the dairy, but it also measures the dream of Rita, Paolo and Luca, who invested their energy in a project born in 2019 and that took the name of Otto Passi. Theirs is a farm breeding sheep of Sardinian breed and dairy processing, which uses only the milk of its own production, processed exclusively raw for mature cheeses, without the addition of selected ferments, but only with self-produced grafts. The company is located in the heart of Sardinia, in Noragugume (NU), in the Plain of Ottana. Everything started from the flock of Luca, Rita's brother, inherited from his father and grandfather, and from a desire: to give value to a territory, to a rooted tradition, but grafting innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. From the irrigation of the fields where the Sardinian sheep graze all year dairy production that takes place using only self-produced grafts, the whole chain is followed with care for details and pride for its origins. A closed chain in which the flock of about 1000 heads has at its disposal 200 hectares of pasture and a transformation carried out in a small avant-garde and well-structured laboratory where the creativity of Paolo, the cheesemaker, comes to life. Rita, Paolo and Luca have clear ideas, they know what they are doing and above all they know where they want to go: we want to present this project that loads us with expectations through two products, a mature pecorino cheese and a pecorino cream, that we are sure they can tell more by themselves than we can say in words.
