    Reading about your odyssey with Buffalo Mozzarella had me saying 'cheese', many times over. The cheese looks divine and i can see all of you had a great time. I think getting fresh produce straight from the farm or dairy is an experience which is worthwhile, in the fast paced world of convenience good, these kind of experiences are becoming rarer and rarer.

    Wow, thanks for the tip! I had never heard of buffalo mozzarella, but Italians know their food, so I'm always up for a new delicacy!! Amazing that locals drive hours to get this specific cheese - we're heading through regional Italy later in the year, so I'll definitely add a visit to the farm onto our itinerary!

    I've also been to a buffalo farm in Campania and there's nothing like having a freshly made one. It's one of the most delicious things and I love it just drizzled with a bit of olive oil, balsamic and served with tomatoes. Yum!

    Well the family sure looks happy at the end of the tour when the cheese gets tasted! I didn't know the buffalo had it so good - massages and everything! That must be why it's so good. We need our water buffalo to be happy so we can have happy cheese.

    OMG! Buffalo mozzarella and that too fresh! How lucky you are! I am reminded of my brief visit I made to one of the cheese making centers in Lucerne, The smell that floated around their was too good and I am reminded of it now reading your post.

    You are so lucky to do that! I absolutely adore buffalo mozzarella. When I had it in Italy, I could not believe how much better it was than the mozz I grew up on in New York. I would definitely want to visit this place.

    Oh, yeah! Buffalo mozzarella is divine. I'm surprised at how many people don't know that the source of the milk is the reason for its name. I was in this part of the world a few years ago on an Italian road trip and really wanted to visit a farm. Looks like I really missed out.

    I like activities based on food, especially a single food, especially something dear to the heart, and I think you really hit it here with this tour. I've never been to a cheese maker anywhere, and I think it would make a brilliant day.

    The best mozzarella by far is mozzarella di bufala. What a great experience. I have never tried yoghurt or ice cream made from buffalo milk. I really want some now!!

      Hi Rhonda thank you for reading - They really do have a wonderful life. They are treated so well it was nice to see. Probably not in most countries they don't use it and even it Italy you have to ask especially for Mozzarella di Bufula if you want it on on pizza and only some places do it. :) For sure you should try it!

    I remember the last time I was visiting friends in the south of Italy and had a lunch where buffalo mozzarella was the star of the menu. I didn't like it beforehand simply because I never had the chance to have it handmade and freshbbut since that day I'm in love with it!

    Wow very interesting to read your blog post and get to know more about buffalo mozzarella. I knew nothing about buffalo mozzarella until I read about it here, especially that the authentic buffalo mozzarella must be produced in certain regions in Italy. Really curious as to how the taste is like :)

      I love it too - you will find it in Northern Italy as well - Not the farms but you will find the mozzarella de bufula and can order in restaurants and buy in the stores - so no worries !

    I loveloveloved buffalo mozzarella, then I heard how they treat the animals and not I'm not having any. It's a shame how animals are treated. This place might do it differently though...

      This farm takes amazing care of the animals - they have a massage station, they are not forced to milk they milk when they feel ready they eat and sleep on their own schedule - and the fARM was super clean and after interacting with the buffalo you could say they had no fear of people. They have been loved on -

    I love mozzarella on my pizza and salad, with a visit to the cheese farm makes it more authentic experience eating it from the main source. I would love to visit that place too.

    To be honest, I have tasted mozzarella only in the pizza. Your trip sounds really good! I like to taste local goodies straight from the source, and I am happy that you shared with us the meaning of the word mozzarella. Cool fact to know :)
