TOURS

Dairy Farm in Fidenza

Experience the steamy environments where Parma2064 Parmigiano Reggiano is made and find out how the king of cheeses is created. The dairy farm in Fidenza (PR) is where Parma2064 originated, the cheese’s name actually deriving from the identification number given to the dairy by Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano Reggiano, as well as from the region where the milk is produced. Nowadays over 30,000 wheels of cheese are produced in Fidenza every year. You are welcome to go and see them displayed in perfect rows along the traditional shelves of our maturation room.
If you’d like to discover the centuries-old traditions of Parmigiano Reggiano, book a visit. We will take you on a tour of the fascinating cheese-processing facilities and the maturation room, finishing with an opportunity to sample our range of Parma2064 Parmigiano Reggiano cheeses of various degrees of maturation. Tours are available in both Italian and English and must be booked in advance.

The Parmigiano Reggiano Museum

Corte Castellazzi in Soragna houses is a little gem of rural architecture: the historic Castellazzi dairy, previously part of the Meli-Lupi Fortress.
The Corte is a particularly prized building on account of its unique circular structure, which is large when compared with other similar buildings, as well as its harmonious proportions, both inside and outside, and its decorative features and finishing touches.
The part containing the dairy consists of the oldest cylindrical section which dates back to 1848. When it was originally built, the building had a low portico which has been walled in and nowadays has windows.
It was subsequently renovated and finally enlarged in the middle of the last century (1963), with the construction, on the east side, of a milk room and, in the basement, of a salting room.
The former dairy was chosen as the location of the Parmigiano Reggiano Museum on account of its unique circular structure and because in a single room it was possible to display all the tools and equipment that were used to make cheese in the olden days.
In the museum shop you can buy Parma2064 products.
