Dairy Val d'Orcia

The Magnificent Cacio di Pienza

Founded in 1964 from the passion of Don Oscar Guasconi, the Val d'Orcia Cooperative has successfully transformed pastoralism into a thriving reality. Today, 150 members contribute 11 million liters of milk annually, helping to enhance the pecorino of Val d'Orcia and protect the territory. More than just a dairy: the cooperative has stabilized milk prices, ensuring fair compensation for its members and promoting product quality.
The awards for the "Best Pecorino in Italy" in 1990 and the "Super Gold at the World Cheese Awards" in 2019 confirm its success. The cooperative looks to the future with optimism, ready to face new market challenges and continue to grow this small but significant entity. An example of collaboration: the history of the Val d'Orcia Cooperative demonstrates how, with collaboration and passion, great results can be achieved.
