ABOUT THE BUFFALOES

Did you know?

Milk from the buffalo is white with a creamy texture, naturally homogenized and high in milk solids, perfect for the production of traditional buffalo mozzarella, yogurt , ice cream and Asian spacialties; The milk contains a atural anti-oxidant and is easily digested even by people with milk allergies. Raised on pasture the milk has healthy conjugated linoleic acid (CLA); Buffalo are extremely disease resistant - lameness, mastitis and pink-eye,common cattle diseases, are almost unknown in water buffalo;

There are no incidents of BSE (mad cow disease) in water buffalo anywhere in the world; Management requires similar fencing, housing and handling equipment as cattle.

In temperate climates buffalo cool off quickly in the shade because their black skin, rich inblood vessels, conducts and radiates heat efficiently. They have 10th the sweat glands of cattle and it is believed that they use their horns to regulate heat. The meat is indistinguishable in flavour from beef, however it is lower in cholesterol and higher in mineral content than meat from cattle. Lean water buffalo meat has less than half (44%) the total fat content of lean beef and has proportionately less saturated fat compared with beef (30% vs. 40%). Pasture raised meats offer more omega-3 and fewer omega-6 fatty acids. weird...but true!

Mozzarella - which is derived from the Neapolitan dialect spoken in Campania - is the diminutive form of mozza ( ), or mozzare ( ) derived from the method of working.Scamorza cheese is a close relative, which probably derives from "scamozzata" ("without a shirt"), with allusion to the fact that these cheeses have no hard surface covering typical of a dry cured cheese.The term mozzarella is first found definitively mentioned in 1570, cited in a cookbook by Bartolomeo Scappi
In other words....... we'll never cut any corners to deliver the freshest Mozzarella on the market; from our farm direct to your palate! Whereas other's product is industrial made, by machinery and pure mathematic profit calculators; we went to the extreme extent to raise our own herd in a Organic Farm and operated a diligent selection of the purest "Mediterranean" Water Buffaloes breed. Altough WB are the hardiest animal to raise, we praise them regularly with treats, carrots and other fruits along the best pasture practices.Beware of frozen curd, as safe as it might be, it's definetely not fresh and not trackable... yet not fresh and local; we can name every single animal at our farm!
