What Goes Into Organic Cheese?
Published: 01/26/2013

One of my favorite trips of recent years was a visit to several organic farms that make products for Lucini Italia, a company that provides authentic, handcrafted gourmet foods based on Italian culinary traditions. One highlight was this trip to Lucini’s small-batch artisanal producer of organic Parmigiano Reggiano cheese in the Reggio-Emilia region of northern Italy. The master cheesemakers there handcraft just six 80-pound "wheels" of cheese daily. Only three of those wheels go on to be stamped "stravecchio" (which means "extra-aged’) after a full 36-month aging process. The methods I observed have remained virtually unchanged in this region for 700 years.
