The most important product is the famous Fagagna cheese, heir to the tradition of the district’s dairy cooperatives. The Latteria Sociale di Fagagna – Fagagna Social Dairy – set up in 1885 – was among the first cooperative structures in Friuli. Today there are three dairies that continue to ensure the quality of a cheese made using only raw, unpasteurized milk and an unmistakable flavour as a result of the plants present in the hay meadows around Fagagna.
This is one of the oldest cheeses in Friuli and was created in 1865 in the Fagagna cooperative dairy, founded by Luigi Pecile. It is a fat cheese, with a slightly soft to hard consistency suitable for short or long maturation. Fresh (60 days.), Medium (6 months) and mature (one year), it bears the name branded on the rind. In the area there are three dairies: the Paludo district, Centro district and that of the Riolo district.
