Among the most popular products typical of the Mugello is definitely the milk. In these lands in fact, the cows are raised in open pastures, feed on forage quality, and this allows an excellent genuine quality milk.
For this reason "Mukki", the Florentin historic company that produces milk and dairy products, has chosen for its production of quality, the special selection "Mugello", dairy products only from Mugello, following the best farming techniques.
To allow everyone to see how this production takes place, has been created "The Milky Way": this is a route that brings together the best farms in use around the Mugello for the production of milk. The route allows you to discover not only what are the stables used but also and especially the way in which the cows are raised and how is the production of milk: a way to exploit the territory and the techniques of breeding and agriculture.
The route is indicated by a series of brown signs that are located along the main roads leading to the Mugello and various businesses or farms. Here you can watch the production of milk and dairy products but also discover all the other productions made within the farm, thanks to tastings. Among the selected companies therei is also Palagiaccio Farm, which we had already spoken in our blog.
