Milk production has always been the strong point of Cascina Selva with our herd of Friesian cows. A mini-dairy was set up in 2006 where the milk we produce is transformed into fresh and matured cheeses. During the year we produce special cheeses that follow the seasons (cheeses seasoned with wine, hay, and various spices) and are available directly from our farm or at events or markets where we are present.
Our milk is special because besides having Friesians in our herd, over time we have added Alpine Brown, Red Spotted and Jersey cows, thereby obtaining a milk mix that gives our cheeses a particular flavour and taste. Our cheeses are BIO branded and are ICEA [Institute for Environmental and Ethical Certification] certified (ICEA is a body that ensures that proper organic farming procedures are followed) and they have been branded with the Ticino Park Monitored Production Mark.
