The history of the Cugusi dairy has its roots in the early sixties of the twentieth century.
Cugusi Raffaele and Maria move from Sardinia to Tuscany bringing with them the artisan techniques of dairy processing. Here the milk becomes cheese, in particular pecorino and the Cugusi family has carried on the tradition by founding their own dairy.
The dairy is located on the hills of Pienza, where there are the pastures where we raise our flocks. Even today we feed our animals with the herbs of the Val d’Orcia, which give their milk that sweet and delicate flavor that you later find in our cheeses. Our pecorino cheeses follow the classic seasoning of tradition: under walnut leaves, under the bran, under hay and ashes.
