How a heesemaker works
In the beginning
Araldi Pietro and Luigi, the small family-run farm and cheese dairy has been producing the “king” of Italian cheeses, Parmigiano Reggiano since 1964 in Madregolo (Parma), following the entire production chain: from the breeding of cows to milking and all the processing and maturation phases.
Over 50 years the company has undergone a transformation from a few cows raised in a stable to more than 450 heads of Italian Friesian cattle that are raised and cared for with passion to produce high quality milk, because this is the only way to get the best Parmigiano.
The company is self-sufficient, it adopts closed cycle production where everything is produced and used. In fact, only strong and healthy milk-producing cows are selected, and the hay is grown on the farm’s lands using the best equipment and care necessary to obtain a product rich in minerals and fibre, fragrant and healthy.
With great care and in full respect of the Parmigiano Reggiano production regulation more restrictive than Grana Padano cheese, Araldi ensures the traceability of the entire production chain. In addition to the production of lucerne and polyphytic meadows, wheat and durum wheat, corn and tomatoes are also grown for proper crop rotation purposes and other needs of the company .
The dairy farm produces about 3,600 wheels of Parmesan reggiano obtained using only the milk from Italian Friesian cows raised on the farm. The Cheesemaker collects the milk from the stable twice a day, as required by the strict production regulations of the Consortium. The quality of the milk and the skill of the Cheesemaker are essential for the production of an excellent Parmigiano Reggiano.
The minimum aging of Parmigiano Reggiano is 12 months which has a delicate and soft flavour of milk, quite a fresh parmesan cheese; when it has aged 24 months, it becomes sweet with hints of fruit, great for both an appetizer or to be grated, at 30 months it acquires a strong, complex and distinctive taste, and finally at 36 months and 48 months it is highly valued for its characteristic flavour and high digestibility.
