Local Home-made Cheeses from Fontegranne – Belmonte Piceno – Fermo

See on Scoop.itHideaway Le Marche

On a nearby farm at Belmonte Piceno, their motto’s are:

Each year to produce the best hay.

Every day to feed our animals and milk the best milk.

Every morning to turn fresh milk into cheese unique.

Every hour for maturing cheese and enrich our noble perfume.

This is us.

This is our industry.

And this shows.

From the wonderful cool, creamy goats cheeses made with ‘raw’ milk, lightly coated in the hottest of chillies, a taste explosion! To the cheeses aged in terracotta, there is something to suit all tastes.

You can book a degustazione visit – cheese and oil and jams and jellies all homemade and waiting for you to sample.  Cold cuts and high quality products, alongside a small selection of wines from the best wineries in Le Marche.

For the really adventurous, why not spend a day in the dairy, learning for yourself first-hand how to process the cheese. You will participate in different activities that take place in a full working day at the farm from 6.30 am to 13.00 and again in the afternoon. A wonderful experience and all from only €50 per person for a group of 4, or €75 for a group of 2.

Sarah Topps‘s insight:

We met the staff of the Fontegranne at the Gualdo Cheese Festival last year and they certainly have every right to be so passionate about their products. You can tell the care and attention which goes into making each cheese we sampled. They were all delicious.

Why not stay with us at The Hideaway if planning a visit to the farm. For more information see: www.hideawaylemarche.com

  1. I agree Sarah with the Fontegranne cheese makers…., it’s all about quality so what you put in you get out…..Like a good wine, if vines grow in rubbish soil the wine will taste like rubbish….put back and you will be rewarded.
