Curiosity Why this name, Signor (Mr.) G? Because 'G' is the first letter of the name Giovanni Cannas, the owner of Fattoria Lischeto, who has invented this raw paste cheese by mistake. In fact, during a snowy day in 2012 a black out did not permit him to heat the curd, obatining a primordial version of Signor G
Our selection We love this cheese because of its unique texture and taste: after two years of stop we reintroduced Signor G with some differences in structure but always with its unmistakable soul
Suggestions Perfect by its own in a slice of toasted bread, aside in a plate of vegetables or to enrich a cream. Sweet and desirable, to be tried also with an anchovy fillet

Fattoria Lischeto - Volterra (PI) - Tuscany

Why we chose them
Fattoria Lischeto was founded by Giovanni Cannas in the mid 80s, with the idea to blend farming with art and culture, tourism with nature and history. In 1990 Giovanni started also with the cheese-making, transforming only the organic milk of his own sheeps, lived in his land. Recently his sister Rosita joined him in the management of the whole farm. According to Giovanni's dream, Lischeto is not just a farm, it is a magic place where culture, love for art and for nature, passion for history and for tradition are blended together. The 800 sheeps can graze freely in the 240 hectares of the farm, where forage is produced and where you can also find here and there some artworks, thanks to Giovanni love for art. The milk is then transformed by Ruggero, the dairyman. The farm is managed in the total respect of nature, men and animals, with a whole organic cycle of production, from seeding to harvest, from breeding to cheese-making. In the production, that is completely handcrafted, the purpose is to maintain and develop the tradition of the typical flavors of Tuscan farming. "We only use the milk of our own sheeps - told us Giovanni - respecting the natural cycle of sheeps. This reason some of their cheeses are not always available.
