Bitto Storico: The Oldest Edible Cheese in the World

Bitto Storico: The Oldest Edible Cheese in the World

13 April 2016

There are only 12 producers of Bitto Storico, and they are all in one valley named after the Bitto River that runs through it. The cow and goat milk used to make the Bitto Storico cheese are all free range; they aren’t allowed to be fed feed or anything unnatural. They spend the summer grazing on the mountain pastures and depending on the year, what the cows were grazing on can change the flavor of the cheese from one wheel to the next.
