The producer

Maiorano - Crotone (KR) - Calabria

Why we chose them
The Maiorano farm has been breeding sheep since the late 1800s, producing, according to the XV century tradition, mainly Pecorino Canestrato Crotonese. This version of Crotonese Pecorino cheese owes its originality to the use of sheep's milk by Gentile race (one of the most important Italian native sheep breeds) and rennet of kid. From the same milk is also produced an 'excellent smoked ricotta with olive and orange wood from Maiorano farm. The company is in Crotone
