DESCRIPTION OF THE EXPERIENCE 

  • 09:15 am Departure from Parma towards the « Lowlands ».


  • 09:45 am Meeting on site with a local host and visit to an authentic cheese dairy of Parmigiano-Reggiano of the “Low Lands” of Parma.
  • We have selected an historical producer that started the activity back in 1846, one of the few of the Consortium that has the full production cycle : grass – cows – milk – cheese. Discover how "the King of all cheeses" is made in the same way since centuries ago like the Monks who invented it... You'll see first hand the "making of" it, the salt pools and the "wheel cathedrals", real walls of cheese up to 20.000 in the same place!..

 

  • 11:15 am visit to a unique farm in Italy where you’ll be able to admire local fruit and vegetable cultivations, local black pigs and many other farm animals to learn how the real « farm to table » concept works... 


  • To follow : welcoming to Antica Corte Pallavicina, a medieval court where you’ll admire the new Museum of Culatello di Zibello, to learn the history and making of this amazing product with instructive audio guides and the aging cellars dating back to the XII century, where the “king of the cured meats” Culatello di Zibello rests for years… People like Prince Charles of England and Prince Alberto of Monaco have discovered this “hidden secret” and felt in love with it... 
  • The prosecution of the museum will be open-air, along a new fascinating path called « Po Forest » where it will be possible to see, between other points of interest, the free range local black pigs…  
  • Tasting session/lunch at the end of the visit with a large selection of the production of the farm including : Culatello di Zibello, Salame Gentile, Strolghino di Culatello, lard and Cotto Spigaroli (cooked ham), Giardiniera (pickled vegetables), homemade focaccia,  paired with 2 different wines: dry Lambrusco and Fortana del Taro.
