Traditional Sicilian shepherds still make cheese the way their ancestors did. You will attend the Ricotta and Pecorino cheese making process, and taste sheep curd cheese, tuma as well as ricotta. The guide and the shepherd will explain the different steps and the process used. 


The tour includes a short hike, an encounter with a shepherd during the cheese making process, cheese tasting, of course, and warm ricotta served directly from the pot. It is definitely a special gastronomic experience and a great opportunity to spend some time with locals.
