Wake up bright and early when the sun is yet to rise. Meet the owners of an authentic mountain dairy, listen to their stories and go with them to milk the cows. Enjoy the fresh milk’s flavor, attend to the traditional cheese making and, why not, taste the curd! Let’s discover how they transform the cream in butter. Go up to the pasture and learn how to distinguish the wild grasses’ spouts. Start your day with cows and animals up at a mountain dairy. How about that?
