What to expect

What is goat milk? I will welcome you to our farm located in the enchanting Sabina countryside near Rome. We will start the goat milk experience with a tour of the farm facilities: you will get to know our Maltese goats, curious and sociable animals, visit the shelters with outdoor access, and take a walk in the farm pastures.

I will explain the characteristics and health benefits of goat milk, which is easily digestible and suitable for all ages, the milking of goats and their feeding, based exclusively on farm pastures, local hay and Non-GMO fodder based on corn and barley.

Later, we will visit the farm’s dairy. Here the goat’s milk for cheese production is pasteurised and added with the starter culture produced in the dairy. I will also show you how goat’s cheese is dry salted.

We will taste together the specialities from our closed food supply chain: pasteurised goat milk, white and fruit yoghurt, fresh goat’s cheeses such as “primo sale”, “stracchino” and “robiola”, aged cheeses and ricotta.


The Food Expert: the farm is located in the Sabina countryside near Montelibretti, Rome. We have been breeding about 300 Maltese goats registered in the breed herdbook. The Maltese goat comes from the Mediterranean area, adapts well to our local climate for its hardiness, robustness and produces a type of milk which is particularly suitable for processing. Furthermore, the moderate smell and taste of goat milk favourably predisposes to the consumption of goat products.

The farm is located in the Sabina countryside near Montelibretti, Rome. We have been breeding about 300 Maltese goats registered in the breed herdbook. The Maltese goat comes from the Mediterranean area, adapts well to our local climate for its hardiness, robustness and produces a type of milk which is particularly suitable for processing. Furthermore, the moderate smell and taste of goat milk favourably predisposes to the consumption of goat products.

The animals are housed in large shelters with access to the outside. Their diet is based on farm pasture, local hay and Non-GMO fodder based on corn and barley. Breastfeeding is carried out naturally with the mother, without using artificial milk, to improve the well-being of mothers and babies.

The milk is processed in the dairy inside the farm, where we produce pasteurised milk, white and fruit yoghurt, fresh and aged cheeses. The farm philosophy has always been based on the values of animal welfare and sustainability. The choice of a low environmental impact breeding is reinforced by the production of renewable solar energy with photovoltaic panels, perfectly integrated into the roofs without any disfigurement in the landscape.
