The Debbene Dairy is located in Sardinia, on the plateau of Campeda, in the town of Macomer in the province of Nuoro. Gianfranco and Salvatore Bussu, besides producing excellent cheeses, are first of all pastors and they manage their company in a strictly organic way. The 1800 Sarda breed sheep are bred in the wild and have about 200 hectares of available pasture. Power is only enhanced by the addition of organic feed produced on the farm, without chemical fertilizers. Animals are never treated with antibiotics or synthetic products. Debbene cheeses are produced exclusively with milk obtained from the Sarda breed sheep that are reared on the farm. The rennet that is used to coagulate is obtained from the Sarda lambs.
