From a passion for Family tradition and agriculture “Fattoria Bistecca” was born.

Fattoria Bistecca is a family-owned farm in the Chiana Valley, at the foot of Cortona, and takes its name from the Salvadori’s family farming history.

Fattoria Bistecca has been meticulously restored.  It is surrounded by over 37 acres of grain, fields of sunflowers, alfalfa and beautiful vinyards. The farm is also home to many animals including ponies, chickens, hens, geese, ducks, doves and sheep.   Our sheep are famous because they are in the movie Under the Tuscan Sun.  In the movie, the sheep stop the bus in front of “Bramasole” where Frances decides to buy the house.

Cheese Making class

Lapo and Ilaria teach the traditional method of production and aging of Pecorino.   Typically ,Tuscan cheese is produced  from sheep milk .  We don’t paustorize our milk and therefore,  this cheese is a raw milk cheese.  It is a unique and different experience. During the course, you will produce three types of cheese: raveggiolo, pecorino and ricotta. Our Ricotta is also mentioned in the Under the Tuscan Sun Cookbook by Frances Mayes.

The experience will end with a wonderful tasting of Tuscan bruschetta, pecorino cheese, pasta, and ricotta with jam, all accompanied by good wine.

The class start at 10 a.m. for finish at 2.00 pm ( from 2 to 12 People). Cost from € 70 to € 90 per person.
