I would do this again in a heartbeat. Our guide was friendly and Knowledgeable. It was interesting to get up close to see a cheese marking process. End the end you get to try the cheese that they were making.

We were roaming the area when we came across this dairy farm producing local traditional cheese and ricotta and being both interested in gastronomy we wanted to visit. Little did we know that we had to do a booking to do so. Therefore we bought some produce on that day and visited the dairy the next day after a booking through email. All the staff there were very welcoming and helpful. The visit was really interesting and informative, and we had ample time to look at the production line of various cheeses and ricotta from start to finish. Our visit ended by tasting four types of cheese and some wine...all at Eu10 each. Highly recommend if visiting the area, especially those interested in gastronomy. We also managed to buy delicious, local cheese at good price to take home directly from their shop. Thumbs up for your kind service and staff.

I would highly recommend this if you like cheese! So interesting to hear about the different Sardinian cheeses and the history of the company. After the tour you get to taste some cheeses and buy if you want to at reasonable prices
