Malga II Lotto Marcesina

Malga II Lotto Marcesina is located in the territory of Enego,more precisely in the heart of the Plain of Marcesina (in Merck-wisen cimbro), known as"The Finland of Italy"for its orography and harsh climate.
The farm is surrounded by green pastures characterized by numerous stones,debris derived from the melting of glaciers and that once the Malghesi had the task of removing from the ground and then amassing them in one place, forming the walls that still make the border between the huts.
It offers a great starting point for wonderful routes that are easily walkable, on horseback or mountain biking.

In the summer you can buy the cheeses and products for sale directly at the farm.

The Malga II Lotto Marcesina is also associated with the Asiago Dop Cheese Protection Consortium.

History and tradition

The Malga II Lotto Marcesina has a very long tradition,for generations the family of managers carries on the craft of the Malghese and breeder on theAsiago Plateau.

The ancestors began in the early 1800s with herds of sheep,but over the years they converted cattle farming as more profitable for trade with other basic necessities and began to transform milk.

Cheese production

Here the cows (each of which has a name depending on their personality and are mostly of The Bruna, Frisona and Red Pezed)are free to feed with thegrass and flowers that they like the most: this is precisely what makes the cheese produced by the farm really special, with different color and flavor depending on the period.

In particular, the cheese is produced with the raw milk of two milkings.

The one in the evening is skimmed (from this outcrop cream comes a butter of deep yellow color) and then added to the morning in the copper boiler,where it is hand-crafted; after the cheese is processed with the remaining serum, a delicious ricottais produced.
The milk is processed from June to October, the seasoning continues in the winter months in Enego,where the managers of the farm have their own workshop.
