Just 25 minutes by car from Suites Marilia is placed the Caseificio Busti, where the company, guided by the passion for its work, allows the public to visit their production plant.
The careful selection of milks and the working methods have not changed over the years. This important aspect is particularly notable in the traditional production of cheese using raw milk, in the dry salting process – carried out exclusively using a type of salt that comes from the nearby salt flat of Volterra -, in the shaping by hand of some of our cheeses such as Marzolino, in the treatment of the outside of our cheeses using natural products such as extra virgin olive oil, tomato paste and olive grounds and, last but not least, in the slow maturation on shelves of spruce and beds of straw, in both controlled and natural environments.
“I Formaggi della Famiglia Busti” is a brand that identifies all the products of the Caseificio Busti, guaranteeing both authenticity and origin. Alessandro and Remowere shepherds from the Garfagnana mountains who began their activity in October 1955, in Acciaiolo, in the municipality of Fauglia, very close to the current dairy plant. Today Stefano Busti, heir to this valuable tradition, manages the family-run company together with his son Marco and his daughter Benedetta.
The Dairy, built ex-novo to blend harmoniously with the surrounding environment, opened in September 2011. It has a surface area of 5200 m2, divided into two floors. The ground floor is dedicated to cheese and ricotta production, preparation and packaging, whereas the first floor is dedicated to the cheese maturation process, using temperature and humidity controlled refrigerated cells. The modern process equipment and the high investment in the plant’s innovative air-conditioning system, together with the tried-and-tested traditional production, contribute to the constant improvement in the quality of our cheese. Our dairy plant is open to the public so that they can see our artisanal production for themselves.
Their Quality Office will be at your disposal to welcome you here with guided tours, teaching tours for children of all ages and simple tours with a chance to sample a wide range of our products at the end.
