Our organic farm I FORMAGGI DEL DOTTORE of 40 hectares is located in the centre of the green heart of Tuscany, the Val D'Elsa, in Castelfiorentino. Our farm is organic since 2009 and consist of pastures, olive groves and woodland.
Guido, his wife Stefania and a small team of collaborators personally manage every detail in the cheese making process since 2009. A passion that wasn't just born accidentally. Guido grew up on this land where he wanted to return to after his working experience with large cheese producers and finishing his degree in Science and Technology of Animal Production from the university of Pisa.
We have a herd of at least 60 goats and produce a high quality goat milk. We transform our milk into cheeses and also buy some local sheep milk (maximum 4 km away) to make cheese from.
We produce fresh cheeses and aged cheeses, all with an edible crust (we do not use any kind of preservatives in our products).
We uniquely make 'raw milk cheeses', a process that exalts all the scents and aromas of our pastures. If you taste a bit of Tuscany in our cheeses, the reason is that we sow the forage that best adapts to our land, unique and genuine, just like the milk we produce.
