Water Buffalo

We had the opportunity to visit a farm where Water Buffalo are raised to produce Italy's famous Mozzarella. Unfortunately the cheese-making process wasn't in progress when we were there so I didn't get very many pictures.

These are some of the 500 Water Buffalo on the farm. True Mozzarella is not made from regular cow milk, but must be made from Water Buffalo milk.

A little calf out by her lonesome.

Walking to the sales room to buy some Mozzarella, butter......

...and even a cone of Water Buffalo milk ice cream!

I love mozzarella, and never knew it was made from Water Buffalo milk. Helena likes the little calf all by his lonesome.
