Activities for everyone at Mondo Contadino!
Do you know what the distinctive qualities of malga cheese are and how it differs from other cheeses? It is a cheese made at high altitudes, between 1500 and 1800 metres above sea level, from freshly milked raw milk. It is a product strongly linked to the territory of the Valle del Chiese, which is rich in foothill meadows and pastures. The constant mowing and care by the farmers, the fragrant grass and the mountain flowers give the milk and the 'formai da mont' with which it is made, very special and inimitable qualities. For example, strong personality, savouriness and surprising digestibility that make it an excellent accompaniment to Storo yellow flour polenta or as a melted cheese or in combination with well-cooked red meat.
The highlight of the event will be the traditional cattle parade, the mowing competition and the 'junior drivers' competition. At Mondo Contadino, there will be activities for everyone: for farmers and children, for dairymen and breeders, for gourmets and lovers of vintage atmospheres.
It is a weekend dedicated to rurality and high altitude gastronomy at zero kilometres, a full immersion in rural culture and its traditions.
