An original visit to a local farm specialized in the production of fully organic cheese, from fresh ricotta to ripened pecorino.

The farm is located on the top of a hill, surrounded by a unique landscape.
The guide will take you directly in the workroom during the production (that may be different according to the season).
You will visit the barn where the sheep and also the pigs have lodging.
In the end you will enjoy a genuine light lunch by tasting different kinds of cheese together with local hams, different kinds of salami, home- made honey and wine.

The second part of the tour is focused on a very important Tuscan agricultural production: olive oil.
Thanks to the patient care to the trees and the groves, the result of the olive pressing is an unrepeatable oil that you can taste during a visit to a mill.
While visiting, the guide helps you discover all the phases of the olive pressing process and the secrets for a good extra virgin olive oil.
Eventually you will have the chance to taste and compare different types of olive oil of local production.
The olive oil tasting is accompanied by some local olive-oil-based delicatessen and good wines.
