About Agricola Giansanti
Have you ever dreamt of seeing a true barn and all the Parmigiano cheese making? Well, just outside Parma city-centre, on the road leading to the hills of Traversetolo, since 1950 we are hand-crafting Parmigiano Reggiano cheese everyday, from raw material (the milk of our cows) to the Parmigiano cheese. We are the only company in Parma, where you can see in the same place the farm and the cheese factory in the same time! Our Parmigiano Reggiano is so unique that we have won a lot of international prizes, such as the 2014 World Cheese Award and the 2016 Alma Caseus Gold Medal... Come and enjoy an English speaking guide and cheese tasting in our factory!

Our friends that we were traveling with selected this tour. Great tour, friendly staff, plenty of cheese to sample and even though my wife and I grew up next to dairy farms, seeing the little calves was fun too.

Ciara was a wonderful guide! As herself a Master Cheese Maker, she offered first hand experience of the process of making Parmesiano Regiano cheese The farm is small, the staff friendly and the cheese excellent. Ciara's English is excellent, she is warm, enthusiastic and knowledgable.
