Visit to Ricotta cheese farm (Summer)

A visit to a shepherd in the Madonie mountains from July to November

A visit to a real Sicilian shepherd, an authentic experience of the rustic Sicilian country life. Traditional Sicilian shepherds still make cheese the way their ancestors did. The tour includes a short hike and an encounter with a shepherd during the cheese making process. It is definitely a special gastronomic experience and a great opportunity to spend some time with locals.

The visit is part of the full day tour of the Madonie, as the shepherds still do the transhumance and move to the mountains in the hot season. In this case, the tour includes stops in local villages and in the most beautiful mountain sites.
