odere il Casale is a multifaceted reality that has been in the hills of Pienza for 30 years. Arriving at this organic farm you will discover what it means to live the peasant life here in Val d’Orcia. You can not only explore our world but actively participate in the many activities we offer. In fact, on our farm we produce fruit and vegetables, but also oil, wine, cereals, honey and saffron. Our crops are entirely organic, and we also raise donkeys, sheep, goats and pigs. Thanks to them we can obtain our sausages and produce the typical pecorino di Pienza in our dairy attached to the farm.
You can choose between the guided tour of the company, where you have made the acquaintance of our animals, you will continue in the dairy where you can learn the secrets of our cheeses including the traditional Pecorino. Here we explain how a cheese is made and how it is aged or refined. The tour ends with a platter of our raw milk cheeses, a delight from our garden, a glass of local wine, water and our bread at the table in our restaurant.
Among our activities you can choose cooking classes with Sandra: from traditional Italian cooking courses, to pizza or bread-making lessons (very suitable for families). The ingredients we will use are of our own production and we will use the Podere’s wood oven. Participants will then be able to gorge themselves with the dishes they have created. If, on the other hand, you want to learn the secrets of dairy art, find out how to make cheese with Ulysses!
