Breeding Farms

Our animals

The land surrounding our commercial farm has become oasis of life thanks to our commitment to recovering an abandoned land. Now this space is used for our breeding farms of hens, cows and other animals that accompany our daily life in Agrisalus. With 18000 square metres of land at our disposal, we make sure that we constantly harrow the land in order to facilitate its renewal and use it on a rotational basis, thereby preventing its deterioration. Thanks to this commitment, we have injected new life into a portion of earth, creating a healthy and vital environment for our animals.

Cows

In the Agrisalus breeding farms, you can see our cows and discover how they are raised and cared for. Thanks to them, we offer a large variety of dairy products, such as cheeses, butter and yoghurt, all of them homemade with their milk. We are happy to offer cooking labs and tastings to spread knowledge of the flavours and traditions of our land.

Pigs

Pigs are an essential part of our family. They play a fundamental role in our production process, as they allow us to manage in a sustainable fashion the by-products of milk processing, such as whey, which would otherwise be considered special waste. Thanks to pigs, we are capable of making internal use of whey, transforming it into precious nutrients without creating any negative impacts on the environment. In this way, a virtuous cycle is completed within our production chain.
Moreover, thanks to snuffling they allow us to curb weeds and reforestation, thus contributing to the maintenance of the land.

Hens

We also have a breeding farm of hens, and through laboratories our guests can discover the secrets of how to care for and raise these animals, collect eggs and prepare typical dishes based on fresh eggs. In addition, we organise interactive activities for the little ones by involving them in everyday activities.

Our hens are raised in open spaces, where they can fulfil part of their nutritional needs directly from the ground. This has a positive effect even on the eggs they produce, which contain a lower quantity of hypercholesterolemic saturated fatty acids. This characteristic is particularly evident in the grey-blue shelled eggs.

Greetings

Welcome

Upon your arrival at Agrisalus, you will be able to breathe an air of nature, simplicity and relaxation. Lorenzo will be there to welcome you; he is the heart of Agrisalus and will be the one to accompany you along this path of discovery and wonder. You will inevitably find yourself captivated by his passion and enthusiasm.

You will have a chance to explore the farm campsite, the cheese factory and the breeding farms, and will be able to experience up close the cheese production processes and the animal care, concerning which Lorenzo is a real expert, and you can ask him any question you want.

Breeding Farms

Upon arriving in Agrisalus, your attention will be caught by our animals. As they are of fundamental importance for the various activities we perform at our farm campsite, their well-being represents an absolute priority for us. Lorenzo, who is a veterinary as well, makes sure that all the animals receive the right care and have suitable spaces available to them. Every day, moreover, he dedicates his commitment to ensuring their complete well-being and helps us creating increasingly tastier and more genuine products.

During your visit, you will also get the opportunity to take part in animal care and pose any question you want. Lorenzo will be extremely happy to reply and you might then find it hard to make him stop.

Cheese factory

It is here that the production process of our best products officially starts: cheeses, yoghurt, creams and even ice creams. This place represents the paradise of dairy products, where next to our cheesemaker Giulia you can witness the various production phases and discover the methods, tools and ingredients we use to bestow tastiness on our products.

The visit to our cheese factory will be an experience of discovery of tradition, craftsmanship and exquisiteness, during which you will have the chance to unearth the secrets handed over generation after generation across the territory and the people who inhabit it and work every day with passion to make it special.

Tasting

We know by experience that guests come out of the cheese factory hungry, which is why we have scheduled a break, a moment of relaxation and food. Finally, having already unveiled all the secrets of production, you can savour our products, and as you eat them, you will feel all the flavours of the Trentino territory, nature and tradition.

This is usually the favourite part of every visit: at last, we can eat and drink something together relishing the beauty of the nature around our farm campsite (included in the price).

Shop

We are certain that you will love the taste of our products, so much so that you will want to take them home after the tasting. After discovering the secrets of our production and tasting the wholesomeness of our cheeses, you will be inevitably tempted to relish them again and you will find all of them available for purchase at our shop.

Cheeses, yoghurt, cured meats, puddings and even ice cream whatever you may desire will be there, within your reach. And after that, come on… will you not take something for your relatives, too?

Final greetings

All goods things come to an end sooner or later, and at this point our visit will be over. After throwing another glance at our lovely landscape you can go back home with your belly full, plenty of delicacies and, above all, the memory of a wonderful experience steeped in nature and tradition. Now, however, turn this dream into a reality, and book your visit to our farm campsite in Arco.
