Biocaseus 2017, the VII edition of
the International Prize of organic cheese.

We are getting to the seventh edition of Biocaseus, the
International competition of organic cheeses.
An event that involves number of producers of organic cheese
from all European countries.
A world to discover the most part - often hidden in remote corners
of the countryside throughout Europe - where the animals are living
in spacious stables, going to pasture, andalso are feed naturally,
without forcing and with foods free of preservatives and additives,
able to make them produce more.
A world where is pursuing a way of farming that considers animal
husbandry and agricultural crop rotation as the necessary
completion for the circles of soil fertility, which continues to hold
the manure as an asset rather than a waste to be disposed of in
less expensive ways.
A world that continues to consider that making cheese is the most
natural and old way to preserve all the milk richness, herbs,
bacteria and the environment in which way it was born.
Biocaseus is theexhibition of masterpieces of the Art of cheese
from Italy, France, Spain, Austria, Germany, Holland, Belgium, since
1999, every two years we are challenged to learn that the organic
cheeses are very good and are better than others are, and they
interpret the typical culture of the places and the people who
created them.
