Raw milk/farm produce around Lugano

Hello all. Does anyone know where I can get raw milk and other farm produce and offerings around Lugano? I'm not sure if farms are as plentiful in Ticino as in other places around Switzerland.

Any recommendations would be most welcome!

Cheers.

I do not know about raw milk , but when we were exploring the village of gandria ( 3 km from Lugano ) , I found this shop next to the hotel Attica , la bottega di gandria selling fresh eggs, bread, cheese and other knick knacks. But no raw milk.
The most SUPRISING thing was , it was a Sunday , and the shop was open. To recapture the falling tourism to gandria , the shop keeper said to my query as to why it was open on a holiday, UNLIKE the rest of Switzerland.
But the staff was real pleasant to talk to, the food real fresh made locally . May be you can ask for raw milk
Best of luck

Hi,

There's a natural 'bio' shop in Lugano city centre by Manor (in a small side street to the right of the shop): I think you could ask there, as they have all kinds of bio specialist products for sale, which I haven't seen anywhere else in this area.

Not much use to the OP .. But many of the small villages around me, Signy, Eysin etc you can go help yourself to unpasturised milk and eggs and usually various other farm type stuff. Just take yer stuff and leave some money in the box. One nearby even has home made wine just sitting there outside..

Now back in my town in the UK.. It would be gone in seconds, along with the money box

Re: Raw milk/farm produce around Lugano

Gosh, I just saw this. I actually go to one close to Novazzano which is in a Suzuki dealership. The milk is great. But it is like 25 min. one-way from my house, so I don't get there as much as I would like. I wish I could find a closer one further north. Even Mendrisio is about 16-18 minutes in a car, but I will check this one out.

Thanks.
