Our mountain farm Funtana is located in the Blenio valley in the northern part of Ticino. The farm also includes a May pasture and alpine rights on the alp Pian Segno on the Lukmanier. In addition to the horned cows of the Original Brown Swiss breed, a few pigs, laying hens and ewes live here. With the support of our two daughters Marina and Doris we process the milk in our small farm cheese dairy into butter, mascarpone, formagella, raclette, semi-hard, fresh, alpine cheese, etc.
The meat is processed by the butcher of the neighbouring village and marketed directly. From the calf we sell mixed packages. In addition, there are various Ticino specialities such as coppa, raw ham, dried meat or salami.
Last but not least, we also rent a modern holiday apartment in Largario with a view of the Rheinwaldhorn glacier. Enjoy the fresh air and peace in what was once the smallest village in Switzerland.
It is very important to us that all animals have daily access to the open air and that the cows can keep their horns. We try to manage the farm according to the location and produce healthy food. By the way: We also send our products by post.
Best wishes from the Martinali family in Ticino with Carlo, Monika, Marina and Doris.
