Il Forteto is an agricultural co-operative which was founded in 1977. Nowadays it consists of 72 members, including workers and producers and over 80 employees. Over the years the co-operative has focused on the production of fresh and aged cheeses, and it is recognized as one of the most important dairies of the Consortium of Production of PDO Pecorino Toscano. But the co-operative has never forgotten its agricultural background and so cattle are bred and fodder and wheat are produced on a company-owned area of 600 hectares in the hills of Mugello, between Vicchio and Dicomano.
