Writes Laura C. on Google Reviews:
"Great farm, family run for several generations. The current Malgari, Ugo and Raffaele, sons of the previous owner Tarquinio Marini, lead the farm producing doc dairy products.
Ugo and his wife Gabriella are great guests for those who want to stop to taste their products and for a quick snack.
Nestled in nature with cows grazing,it is a great place for walks and to enjoy a sublime landscape."

Writes Linda D. on Google Reviews:
"The landscape surrounding the farmhouse is magnificent. [...] But the biggest surprise is being welcomed as someone in the family. 
We had the honor of seeing where and how they make Asiago cheese,as well as to taste it. [...]
Then they also make butter,absolutely to taste. [...] We'll definitely be back."
