Orientation Trip in Campania: Buffalo Mozzarella Farm

On the second day of Orientation we made our way to a rather peculiar mozzarella farm. This was a buffalo farm where some of the famously delicious mozzarella di buffala is produced. However, not all mozzarella di buffala is produced equally.

At this particular farm, their mission is to keep their buffalos as happy as possible to ensure mozzarella of the highest quality. To achieve this, the buffalos listen to classical music, have machines that give them full body massages whenever they desire, and the way milking works is that they only go whenever they want to. It is all a very organic process, and in my opinion the buffalos seemed very happy.

After seeing the buffalos we were allowed to see the workers transform the milk into cheese. It was very interesting seeing how the traditional mozzarella braid was made and impressive how the workers put their hands in boiling water in order to be able to mix the cheese. At the end of the visit we got to taste the mozzarella and it was absolutely delicious!!
