The Lischeto farm, just a few kilometres from volterra, was created by drawing on the experience and traditional knowledge of the family, in a unique landscape and cultural context in Tuscany, a few kilometres from Volterra, one of the best known destinations for the beauty of its historic centre and surrounding hills and increasingly for being the home of the famous Pecorino delle balze volterrane DOP. At the Lischeto farm they adopt the complete organic processing cycle: sowing and harvesting of fodder, selected breeding, which together with the climate, the land and the artisanal production process, make their cheeses unique.
The traditional pecorino cheeses are the famous Pecorino delle Balze volterrane DOP and the Pecorino Rosso di Volterra, both of which can be purchased online on our website.
