Pecorino is derived from the Italian word Pecora meaning sheep. Sheep produce milk only seven months of the year, during which time they graze on green pastures. Since sheep produce just a small amount of milk every day, it takes 200 sheep to craft one 60-pound wheel. Savor the rich hearty flavor and tantalizing aroma of this cheese. Belgioioso.com. No significant different has been found in milk from cows treated with artificial hormones. Imported from Italy.
