Curiosity Francescano is a cheese created to use the surplus of winter milk, as La Maremmana processes all the milk produced by the stable, a choice that allows only the farm's milk to be used without affecting the summer product
Our selection The buffaloes from which the milk for the production of this Francescano is obtained are raised in a semi-wild state on the property farm, on the Maremma hills. The farm is a virtuous example of circular economy, short supply chain and sustainability in all fields: the biogas plant transforms cereals, livestock and dairy processing wastes into energy; the cultivation of cereals is aimed at feeding the buffaloes; all the milk produced by the stable is processed; animal welfare is placed at the centre, together with that of the staff and of the environment

The producer

La Maremmana - Principina Terra (GR) - Tuscany

Why we chose them
Caseificio Inno al Sole La Maremmana is located in a 1800 farmhouse in southern Tuscany, in the province of Grosseto. The farm and dairy are managed by Guido Pallini who took over his family business several years ago. The dairy uses only buffalo milk of its own production which is processed by an expert cheesemaker, Francesco Fasulo, who comes from the cradle of mozzarella production, Battipaglia. The buffaloes are raised free-range and are fed with cereals and fodder mostly produced by the company itself. Environmental sustainability and circular economy are two of the keywords for the business model of La Maremmana: they have a biogas plant powered by manure, exhausted whey and dairy waste. In addition, they employ sod-seeding, a conservative agriculture's technique based of any kind of mechanic of the soil
