The story on why we choose to call our cheese “Pecora Nera”
Each form is different to one another and each wheels has a unique presentation which makes each one a “Black Sheep”. This product was originally created for the Pecora Nera Show which is held every year at the Fattoria Lischeto, in fact this year 2014 is our 3rd Edition. During this event all forms of ART take over the Fattoria also because we are the itinerant of all the Pecora Nera exhibits, which are silhouettes of sheep made from iron and different artist can create their own idea of a Pecora Nera.
