Cheeses of the Bergamo tradition 2024

A story of passion and work, which began over 40 years ago in the Bergamo Valleys, places that tell of ancient dairy traditions,
pastoral activities and transhumances, of breeders and master cheesemakers who over time have led to the construction of a very lively bond
between the alpine valleys and the plains, transforming a subsistence economy into an economy capable of generating added value.

The flagship of our cheese factory is the production of the Branzi cheese that still nowadays continues with the well-known
“Il dolce Branzi Monaci” brand and with many other typical products. In our cheese factory we prepare, with care and passion,
cheese like Taleggio, Ricotta, Mozzarella and Butter. You can find all our products
in our outlet in Almenno San Salvatore and Pontida, as well as many shops in the province of Bergamo.

FRESH MILK AND ARTISAN BUTTER

Milk is the fundamental raw material for the production of all our products,
for this reason we directly deal with the collection of raw milk from selected farmers.

Our pasteurized fresh whole milk is obtained from raw milk collected directly from selected stables in Lombardy.

Our artisanal butter is made exclusively with Italian milk; for the production of Valle Imagna Butter, very similar to mountain butter, only milk from the Imagna Valley is used.

COW CHEESES

Cow’s milk has always been the basis of the peasant diet of the Orobic valleys;
in the past every family kept a cow in the stable: “the Bergamina”.

The production of our cow cheeses is still carried out today in compliance with ancient artisan traditions and is based on the exclusive use of 100% Italian cow’s milk.
Our milk comes from the best stables in Lombardy and Northern Italy, in particular from the mountain areas of the Imagna Valley from which we collect much of our milk from local farmers.
