Valle Orco

If it’s zero-mile products you’re looking for, then this is the place for you. On this farm the supply chain is a family affair, with Diego tending the fields and the animals, and Maria Rita and Laura making the charcuterie and cheese, which they sell directly on the premises. Cultivation, breeding, milking, butchering, processing – where possible, all are carried out according to tradition. The farm produces traditional charcuterie, such as boiled ham, boiled salami, salampatata (potato salami), pig’s trotter salami (an old recipe of the Canavese district), cow’s cheese both fresh (tomino canavesano, crescenza, robiola) and mature (PDO toma piemontese, toma flavoured with spices such as green pepper, lemon and curcuma), and the very rare tuma verda 'd Muntanér. The farm shop also sells fresh pasteurised milk, yoghurt, cream desserts and ricotta, as well as fresh veal, beef and pork. The shop is open on Thursday and Friday from 3pm to 8pm, and also offers a home delivery service (order by telephone).
