The farm is led by Franco in 1989 and then full-time since 1996 also by his wife Daniela. The company moved for the summer on the alp (Alpe Bancet) already used by his father and uncles, where the essences of the alpine flora are transferred into the milk and then the cheese.
The productions, in addition to cow’s milk, goat’s milk is also used and sheep, which the women of the family (and the mother of Daniela Franco) transform in the two laboratories production one downstream and the other in the mountain pastures. To really understand this kind of
products the advice is to get in Alpeggio to know the wonderful views and the reality of the alpine pastures from which it originated milk. This can certainly be an excuse for a nice summer excursion. The alp is accessible
by mountain bike or on foot, and after a long and very scenic but challenging climb, you reach the goal you can gaze at the peak of Monviso and the view of the whole valley.
Direct sales at the farm in Bobbio Pellice and at the Alpine pasture. It is advisable to telephone ahead.
