Ovis is run by the Ledda Piras family, pastors for generations. They have always produced Pecorino cheese for consumption mainly for family and occasionally for family and friends. For three years, thanks in particular to the growth of demand, which over time has expanded the circle of acquaintances and friends of friends, was built a small dairy. The project is to increase production, without affecting the quality of the cheese.

The cheese is hand made with using traditional family recipes. All this results in a genuine, natural and biological Pecorino cheese.
