The route of the Shepherds on the Madonie
“Milk, and work the milk …… experience to live”.
Immersed in the greenery of the Sicilian Madonie Park, a naturalistic area protected since 1981, we find a unique and representative place of an ancient art, the dairy one: welcome to marcatu!
Program: Starting from the village of Petralia we will move to Piano Farina. Within a mountain area we will meet the shepherd who will show visitors how to milk the animals and, with the milk obtained, will begin to produce ricotta and spun dough. An integral part of the experience is that of practice: visitors, in fact, will be able to try their hand at milking and cheese production in the traditional outdoor building with wood-burning hearth. After that, we will all have lunch together inside the pagghiaru, stone and straw construction typical of the marked.
