Whole Cow's Milk of Piedmontese cows, produced and packaged in Italy
Cascina Sant’Anna started its business in 1966 in Cavallermaggiore, in the heart of Piedmont.
Here the watchword is well-being: animal welfare and passion for their work, which the brothers Francesco and Ugo Mellano inherited from their parents. A story of sacrifices and ordinary effort to pass on the tradition of breeding to children, which means past, present and future: in a word, their life and that of their animals.
The company maintains a "family dimension" by focusing on Quality rather than Quantity, and this is perceived by the taste of the milk.
There are some defining aspects to this:
- The feeding of the cows is determined with the utmost attention and considering the experience of tradition.
-The milk after milking is cooled in a very short time in order to preserve the characteristics of the product.
-In a maximum time of 56 hours, the milk passes from milking to packaging, safeguarding tastes and aromas.
But the most important element is the attention and love for animals.
In the stable there is a continuous cycle ventilation, piped music, nebulisation, brushes for self-massage and a pedicure service once a week.
Hay and corn served on stainless steel shelves to ensure hygiene, flavor and fragrance of the dishes; pregnant animals are left free to trample the earth to facilitate childbirth and improve the vigor of the unborn.
In addition, three daily milkings are carried out to ensure that the milk is collected in the least traumatic way possible.
As a result, a highly digestible milk is obtained which maintains its organoleptic characteristics intact, which are difficult to find in any other long-life milk.
THE MANUFACTURER'S COMMITMENT
«From an early age - say Francesco and Ugo Mellano -, we were fascinated by this world, and, even today, witnessing the birth of a calf, feeding it, remains a magical moment for us. There are jobs you don't choose, because they choose you. For us it was like this: we grew up in this farmhouse, where dad showed us what it means to take care of an animal, and to receive the gift of nature in return. And still today we feel the curiosity and enthusiasm of when we were children, when we just wanted to play with animals ".
"Our secret lies in respecting the animals and in the balanced management of the farm. Those who taste our milk realize that the quality of the cows' feed and the care of the breeding make the difference. We are not afraid of comparisons on flavor and digestibility ».
