Upon arriving at Carla and Jean-Do Casanova’s farm, you’ll find much more than just a sheepfold. You’ll uncover a dense slice of Corsican culture here in this verdant setting between Taravo-Ornano and Valinco.
There’s everything! Family tradition, with each generation peacefully co-existing, all motivated by an obvious, shared desire to pass on their heritage and knowledge. Pastoral tradition, which is naturally passed down through imitation and a desire to see a job well done. Now, young Carla has taken over the reins of the farm and management of the herd under the watchful eye of her father, Jean-Do, who’s never reluctant to give out both advice and encouragement. Having been fully immersed in this world from a young age, the young shepherdess naturally and easily carries out the work of her ancestors, without shedding any of the gusto and modernity of a young woman that is comfortable in her time.
And this is undoubtedly where the success of Casanova cheeses comes from—a meticulous blend of tradition and modernity!
