Watching Jean-Joseph Marcellesi in action on his farm, one would never suspect that his skills were learned fairly recently. His gestures, calls and herd-gathering techniques all seem to stem from a natural and inherited place.
Jean-Joseph is a third-generation sheep farmer, a family story to which he is particularly attached. “In the early 2000s, after working at harvesting cork, I returned to my one true passion: my flock of sheep!”

In 2002, Jean-Joseph set himself to producing farmhouse cheeses, with one major focus: quality. To support this commitment he joined the Casgiu Casanu association which promotes homemade cheeses. Sartenese Tomme (casgiu sartinesi), a hard cheese, pressed from raw milk, Le Valicella is a huge hit.

“My cheese is the apple of my eye! It's the details that make all the difference: a good cheese means good milk, healthy animals and a healthy understanding between the people who appreciate it.”

For this perfectionist, tradition must be complemented with new experiences: “A Basque shepherd came to share his methods and techniques with us during a visit to the island. This discovery was very rewarding and I think that communication and the exchange of ideas is fundamental to the improvement of our produce.”

A nice philosophy for mutual aid!
