L’avventura continuato . .il Casale, pecorino azienda biological (Capitolo cinque)

Standard

The Val d’orcia region is known for many things, among them wonderful pecorino cheese. On Friday a few of us for school visited il Casale, a small organic farm nearby. We had a bit of a quasi Telma and Luisa moment when we thought we were lost on “strada bianca” (white, dusty roads) but there’s always an upside to making a wrong turn . . .

On the farm was a peacock named Caruso who was having a love affair with a car. really!! He kept pecking the tires and preening himself!
