Latteria di Tarzo - Tarzo (TV) - Veneto
Why we chose them
The Social Dairy in Tarzo is a cooperative that only works milk which is produced by associated companies. These companies are situated around to the cheese farm, in the valley between Vittorio Veneto and Follina (Prealpi Trevigiane). The dairy was established in 1948 and there were 170 business partners, today there are only 15 business partners. The production amounts are about 35-40 quintals of milk per day, that derive from Brown Swiss cows and red spotted breed cows. The cheesemaker, Martino Grillo, worked for 15 years in the Tambre dairy, that is located on the "Altipiano del Casiglio" and in 1997 he began to work for the dairy in Tarzo. Since 1997 he won a lot of awards, mainly with the "Grillo", the gold medal from 2007 to 2011 and the silver medal in 2013 in Caseus Veneti, finally the Roma award in the National Competition about cheeses in 2013. But also the others Martino cheeses are award winning; e.g. the gold medal to Latteria Stagionato cheese in 2012 in Caseus Veneti and in 2013 he won two others medals, gold and silver, to Latteria and Montasio.
