As told Piano Farina is located around 1400 m (4200 feet) o.s.l. in the middle of the Madonie mountains. The photos on this pages visulize the plants and animals in the area. In the late summer months the cattle are driven up the mountains for grazing guarded by the shepards who live in the mountains in this period of time as well. The shepards milk the cows and from the milk they make the most wonderful cheese immaginable - still on location. The cheese will be ricotta fresh cheese, types of pecorino and the cacciocavallo.
