I had seen this farm highlighted in a television special in Australia about very well educated children who are leaving well paid jobs in the cities, eg in finance, law etc, to return to the family farms and introduce innovative techniques and new products to try and bring them into the 21st century. In this instance from memory the farm already had buffalo but the son convinced the parents to employ a very experienced mozzarella cheese maker/s from Compania (the home of buffalo mozzarella) and to install a totally new and very modern cheese making production facility. Judging from what we saw and what we tasted, this is a success. The shop (a very unassuming orange brick building standing on its own in the middle of the fields) is located within the farm on the flat plains of the Maremanna, less than 10 kilometres from the coast and the Tyrrenian Sea, and only a couple of kilometres from a military airbase (the noise was deafening as the jets took off and landed and we wondered whether this adversely impacted the buffalo - no they have been here for a few decades and are used to it). The building containing the shop front also housed the cheese making production facility which you could see through a glass window. A very pleasant young lady gave us a taste of the mozzarella (delicious) and explained what cheeses were on offer which included buffalo ricotta, burrata plus a number of others. They also had a range of buffalo milk yoghurts and buffalo meat products plus several other local farm products. We had 2 buffalo milk cappuccinos, purchased a number of different cheese products and left with change out of €20. There was a machine there that issued numbers so that the people serving know who is next in line so I am assuming it can get very busy. Worth a visit if staying locally but would not travel far to purchase goods. We did not do the farm tour.

This is an exceptional place. The nice woman behind the counter is very helpful with a great smile. The products quality is second to none. Don't miss it.

She goes: "what size you want your mozzarella? 500 g? Okay!" And she nock on the glass window that separates her from the lab and orders it right away, since she didn't have one ready. They grow most of the grains they feed their buffalos with and produce most of the energy their activity required. A must see for the kids.

I visited twice this week; first to taste many of the wonderful buffalo cheeses produced on site - including a wonderful blue cheese which I would highly recommend. The buffalo meat is well worth a try and it's much better for you than traditional beef. My second visit took in the farm tour - we got to see the whole farming cycle from the calves to the milking process. The owners and staff are clearly very forward looking in their approach and I recommend you visit

in a place that claim to take care of the environment I do not expect to eat in plastic plates with plastic fork and knife. Use bioplastic or, better, ceramics, glass and metal.
