Visit a breeding farm and discover the impressive Valdichiana calves. You will undertake an authentic journey through the Tuscan rural culture. The Valdichiana is the territory of origin of the Chianina breed, the biggest calf in the world. The male calves may pass 190 cm in height at the withers and reach 1,700 kg of weight.
At the farm, you will closely observe the beauty, meekness and grandeur of this magnificent white-mantled animal. You will discover the history of the Chianina breed and its deep connection with this territory. Resistant, strong, tame, these beautiful animals have been the engine of agriculture in the Valdichiana before the arrival of agricultural machinery. Today, their meat is considered one of the best in the world; the famous Florentine T-bone steak, for example, comes from the Chianina calves.
After visiting the breeding farm, you will taste the PGI Chianina meat in different versions, such as tartare, roast beef, and carpaccio.
